Several members of the ABC-13 team had this happen to them this morning. We began searching on social media for an answer and noticed there were people all across the country posting that they too couldn't get a bagel at Starbucks.
So I just went to Starbucks and ordered a bagel and I learned that Nashville is OUT OF BAGELS AND THE CASHIER SAID IT IS A BAGEL CRISIS— lala (@marchriska) September 4, 2015

Starbucks is having a bagel shortage I no longer want to live in this world— jan (@smokeyybearr) September 2, 2015
We reached out to Starbucks to ask them what happened to all the bagels. The company responded saying it is recalling its bagels due to a quality issue.
"These bagels didn't meet our quality standards. We're working with our suppliers to resolve the issue," the statement read.

There's no timetable as to when the bagels will return to Starbucks locations nationwide, but it does appear to be a temporary problem.
