In-N-Out Burger locations in Texas closed due to bad bun shipment
If you're still craving your In-N-Out Burger fix after Monday's abrupt closing, you'll have to wait another day, at least, according to company officials.
The burger chain's restaurants in Texas will reopen on Wednesday, June 13, after their new shipment of hamburger buns arrived late Tuesday afternoon, according to sources close to the situation.
On Monday, In-N-Out Burger determined that its shipment of hamburger buns to locations in Texas did not meet its quality standards and closed its 36 stores.
Later that afternoon, In-N-Out Burger executive vice president Bob Lang Jr. said in a news release that the buns the restaurant served did not present any food safety concerns.
"At In-N-Out Burgers, we have always served the highest quality food with no compromise. There was and are no food safety concerns. We decided to close all of our Texas stores until we are confident that we can serve our normal high quality bun."
Lang added that the company expected to reopen their doors within 24 hours, following the hamburger bun situation.
