Butterball Turkey Shortage Shouldn't Ruin Thanksgiving

Say it ain't so. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, turkey-distributing giant Butterball says there might be a shortage of at least one type of turkey.
Th shortage was actually made public last week, but many media outlets didn't pick up on the story until Monday. But, not to worry — there are still plenty of turkeys left out there for you to buy. (Via WHDH)
To clear things up, Butterball didn't say there was a shortage for all of its turkeys. Specifically, it says its fresh turkeys weighing more than 16 pounds are the only ones affected by the shortage. Grocery store orders for those birds had to be cut by 50 percent nationwide. (Via WOIO)
