Nestlé Coffee-mate shortage reported across nation

Consumers say their favorite creamers are missing from the shelves

(Continued)

Facebook pictures also show messages being posted in grocery stores about the situation.

“This has caused a national shortage of creamer through February,” one sign reads.

Ray Werda, a store director for Neiman’s Family Market in Alpena, Mich., said they posted a memo on their shelves from their supplier saying the plant had to temporarily shut down because of a “domino effect” when the company experienced equipment problems. The memo also said weather conditions delayed repairmen trying to reach the plant.

“We have the product back on our shelves,” Werda said on Friday.

When contacted, many local retailers said they also have the creamer in stock and were unaware of any problems or shortages.
