For one week, McDonald’s restaurants in Japan will not be asking, “Do you want fries with that?”

The fast-food chain is taking drastic measures in the McDonald’s-loving country, where potatoes are in short supply: the fast-food chain will limit the portions of fries sold to customers from Friday to Dec. 30.

Medium and large-sized fries will be taken off the menu across the country’s 2,900 locations, due to global supply chain issues and flooding at the port in Vancouver, reported Bloomberg.

Meanwhile, the company is exploring the possibility of alternative flights to Japan to get the spuds there quicker.
