Rita's stops selling frozen custard due to egg shortage

Rita's Italian Ice says they are no longer serving their frozen custard due to an egg shortage.

In the meantime, the company announced on their website they be replacing their custard with soft-serve ice cream.

The shortage stems from an outbreak of avian bird flu affecting the country's egg-laying hens, making less eggs available nationwide.

Rita's says all of their signature menu items will still be available during the shortage.

"We will bring back our award-winning Frozen Custard as soon as we know that we have access to a sustainable supply of eggs," said the company. "In the meantime, we'll continue offering our soft-serve ice cream so guests can still enjoy their favorite 'cool treats.'"
