    Walmart warns its customers of a shortage of dish soap

    Walmart warns its customers of a shortage of dish soap

    Walmart, the world's largest retailer, has placed signs on its shelves warning of a shortage of dish soap in the United States, due to production problems at the Procter & Gamble Group.


    "There is a national shortage of dishwashing liquid and we have placed signs in our stores so that customers will be informed," said a spokesperson.

    According to these signs, consumers must prepare for a shortage at least until December 1st.

    The company says that Procter & Gamble, its main supplier of dishwashing liquid, has informed it in recent weeks that it can not produce enough dishwashing liquid.

    Some categories should be absent from supermarket shelves for a period of time.

    Procter & Gamble says the problem "has been solved."

    "For a short time, the demand exceeded what we were able to produce but it was temporary," said a spokeswoman, adding that supermarket shelves were going to be back "soon".

    The Walmart warning confused the minds of consumers who rushed to social media to post photos of supermarket shelves filled with dish soap.

    Target and CVS Health, contacted, did not respond, but according to the Wall Street Journal, they do not experience any disruption.

    A spokesman for Target even assured daily that there was "no reason to think that (their) stocks of dish soap (would) be affected by problems at a producer."

    Procter & Gamble is the leading producer of dish soap in the United States, with 60% market share.

    Its main production site is based in Kansas City, Missouri, but plans to close it next year and move production to West Virginia.
