The company said it was experiencing delays in shipments of potatoes used to make the famous “french fries”. As a result, he decided to reduce food portions from Christmas Eve until December 30th. “McDonald’s Japan will temporarily stop selling medium and large french fries to ensure that all customers continue to enjoy them,” the chain said, explaining that the potatoes used in its restaurants in Japan are usually imported through a port near Vancouver.
