Fareway dealing with banana shortage

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -
Shoppers at Fareway are being told current banana supplies are "severely impacted."
A sign posted at the Waterloo Fareway says there are three big reasons for the shortage.
Political unrest in Honduras is leading to smaller shipments available for Fareway stores. Unusually cold weather in the Tropics is also leading to a big reduction from their supply source in that region.
Finally, Costa Rican flooding is also impacting the supplies of bananas they receive from that area. 
The sign goes on to say: "Our team at Fareway appreciates our customers' patience as we work diligently with our suppliers to fill your needs."
