By  | 

United Kingdom (CNN) -- According to USA Today and other news outlets, the fast-food chain KFC announced Wednesday that U.K. stores are reporting a gravy shortage.

The company said in a statement that it's working hard to fix the problem.

USA Today reports that the shortage is being blamed on distribution-chain and operational issues.

It comes just after a chicken shortage forced the temporary closure of hundreds of stores in the UK last week.
