Whataburger pulls white buns, toast from some Texas locations

14 June 2018

The Whataburger chain removed white buns and Texas toast from some restaurants Wednesday.

However, due to a quality control issue, the fast-food chain is not now serving Texas toast at its Texas restaurants.

Raising Cane's in Abilene has stopped selling toast due to a bread quality issue that is affecting local Whataburger stores as well. We plan to have new 5-inch buns delivered to affected restaurants today.

"We're working to get new buns to impacted restaurants in DFW, East & West Texas, OK and NW Arksanas [sic] today", Whataburger said in a tweet Wednesday afternoon.

Officials with the burger chain clarified in the statement that the buns didn't pose a health risk and that the issue was with the flavor, which was caused by uan imbalance in the yeast.

Customers could get any burger or sandwich on a wheat bun, flour tortilla or bun-less at no extra charge, the company said.

No date was given for white buns to return: "The company looks forward to getting back to business as usual just as soon as we can". This is not a food safety issue. Our bread delivery did not meet our high quality standards for taste and therefore we are offering customers a substitution of another side item or additional chicken finger. "We are hoping to have this resolved by [Thursday]".

The move to remove the buns and toast elsewhere in Texas comes a day after In-n-Out announced it was temporarily closing all of its Texas stores because it was having problems with its hamburger buns.

Lang said fresh buns were being shipped to the Texas locations Wednesday and that the In-N-Out locations were expected to open within a 24-hour period.
