New Jersey May Run Out of Pork Roll
Thanks to COVID-19, the Garden State may run out of pork roll, or Taylor Ham (we're not having that argument.)
Pork plants across the country are being shut down due to large outbreaks of workers who have tested positive for coronavirus.
Just how bad is the situation?
Johnny Yarusi, the owner of Johnny's Pork Roll got the last six-pound log of Trenton Pork Roll at Restaurant Depot in Neptune. He told NJ.com that he's never seen a shortage like this.
If you're looking to cook up your own pork roll, you may have to wait a while. Tyson Foods said in a statement:
There will be a limited supply of our products available in grocery stores until we are able to re-open our facilities that are closed.
It seems people in the state are holding pork roll like TP! Sales of pork roll are up 50 percent, and Taylor ham is selling for hundreds of dollars on Amazon. Pork roll on Amazon, who knew?
