Chicken wing shortages continue

News10NBC’s Nikki Rudd recently did a fact check on numerous shortages regarding the pandemic and where we stand with these shortages now.

While lumber prices have gone down about 50% from where they were in May, they’re still higher than they were a year ago.

Chlorine for pools continues to be in short supply, and part of that is the lack of bottles and cardboard to package it in.


One huge shortage currently happening is in the chicken wing industry.

Rudd spoke with the owner of Windjammers in Charlotte, a popular business known for their wings.

The owner stated that a year ago they purchased a case of wings for $80 and that same case is currently $160. The owner stated that wholesalers have said a third of their workforce is gone.

While some things are returning to normal, like toilet paper, wings do not appear to be dropping in price anytime soon.
