Panda Express's most popular fried rice, which replaced eggs with corn, has caused protests from customers because of the unsustainable supply of eggs and soaring prices.
KMPH mass TV in California reported that a woman claimed that Panda Express fried rice must have eggs, which is the same everywhere, and that Panda Express will not patronize until they return to the original way. She and her husband later switched to pizza.
Panda Express fast-food restaurant quietly canceled fried rice with eggs in June and posted a sign saying: "we attach great importance to the health and safety of customers. Due to the temporary shortage of eggs in the whole food industry, panda temporarily adjusted the fried rice recipe and suspended the supply of hot and sour soup."
The outbreak of avian influenza in the United States has resulted in a large number of infected chickens being slaughtered by farms, resulting in a sharp rise in egg prices, and the ready-made egg juice preferred by restaurants has risen even more fiercely.
Panda Express catering group said: "The shortage of eggs suddenly appeared, and we worked hard to develop new recipes and inform customers as soon as possible. On June 25, all our restaurants switched to new fried rice recipes and posted signs to inform customers."
The change could last as long as two years due to a shortage of eggs, the spokesman said.
"Suppliers say the egg shortage will last 18 to 24 months," he said. Even if you get eggs, the price is up. The available egg juice we can buy from several suppliers is extremely limited, so we can't continue to ensure that we buy safe and reliable products."
Anyway, we Americans like fried rice in Panda Express very much. If there is no egg, it is a small pity. But it's not too much to replace it with corn. After all, we like Panda Express very much.
When it comes to the fried rice in Panda Express, we have to say that we can cook Panda Express fried rice at home. We can use eggs ourselves.
