(FOX NEWS) — You might not be able to get fries with that burger.
A cold and wet growing season could cause a problem for everyone’s favorite side- dish.
Farmers in both the US and Canada are blaming a seasonal chill for the down in potato production and warn it could have negative effects on french fries.
The harsh weather is causing smaller potatoes making it hard for companies to cut the fries into their desired shoe-string shape.
