MARKS & Spencer stores are running out of sandwiches after a factory that makes them was shut by a Covid-19 outbreak.
It has left refrigerated aisles empty of lunchtime favourites such as prawn mayonnaise, BLT and chicken salad.
On Tuesday, an M&S in Eltham, South London, had sold out of sarnies before the lunchtime rush after receiving a solitary tray of stock.
Other stores across London and Essex have been similarly hit.
Customer James Brown said on Twitter that M&S had been due to supply sandwiches for a family funeral — but got in touch the night before to say it could not fulfil the order.
He added: “My son ordered sandwiches for after his father-in-law’s funeral. You lot let him down. Shameful.”
The Greencore factory in Northampton shut on Friday for at least two weeks after 292 people tested positive for Covid-19.
M&S said there had been supply problems since Greencore closed but insisted stores did still have sandwiches.
It added: “We are working closely with suppliers to source from alternative sites.”
