    Taco Bell customers may have to pick some new items to order for the time being, because some locations across the country are having a tortilla shortage.

    The company is working to replenish its stock at the affected locations, but in the meantime, tacos, quesadillas, Crunchwraps and burritos are not being sold. CNN reported that officials with the company, which has about 7,000 locations in the U.S., did not say how many restaurants are impacted by the shortage.

    "While some Taco Bell restaurants are experiencing supplier shortages, we are working diligently to replenish the supply of our tortillas (used for products like quesadillas and burritos) in those restaurants and encourage fans to try any of our other delicious menu items like the Power Menu Bowl or Cheesy Gordita Crunch in the meantime," a Taco Bell spokeswoman told Business Insider.

    “We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause and appreciate our customers’ patience.”

    A number of customers complained earlier this month about the limited menu because of the shortage on Twitter, CNN reported.

    USA Today reported that one way to see if a Taco Bell location near you is affected by the shortage is by looking at the menu on the Taco Bell app or website for availability.
