Fans of Chipotle may soon have to say goodbye to their beloved guacamole, the company said in its latest annual report.
The Mexican fast food chain announced in recent Securities and Exchange Commission filings it could temporarily suspend sales of guacamole and some salsas due to an increase in food costs.
Those increases are being caused by global warming, the Denver-based chain said.
“Increasing weather volatility or other long-term changes in global weather patterns, including any changes associated with global climate change, could have a significant impact on the price or availability of some of our ingredients,” Chipotle officials said.
Avocados and other items used to make Chipotle’s guacamole are the ingredients on the chopping block.
