Yes, America may be running low on what is perhaps its signature pasteurized process cheese spread.

Kraft told AdAge they expect this to be a "short-term issue," saying there's a "combination of factors involved" in the shortage, which was first noticed at East Coast grocery stores.
But, this could all just be a lot of cheesiness for no real reason...iness. Kraft says it hasn't heard many complaints from customers. We'll have to see — but just in case, maybe don't double dip.
