If you love chicken wings, you may need to cut back while stores try to make sure there are enough to go around.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- H-E-B has announced it is enforcing purchasing limits on chicken wings. Customers will only be able to buy two packs of fresh or frozen wings per transaction.

In a statement to ABC13, a spokesperson for the grocery chain says it is due to a national supply chain issue.

Chicken consumption has increased during the pandemic. H-E-B also points to the February freeze affecting major chicken-producing regions.
