Winn-Dixie limiting purchases of this Thanksgiving dinner staple

As Central Florida residents make their shopping lists for Thanksgiving dinner, two Florida-based grocery stores are limiting certain items ahead of the holiday.

Publix had announced that it would be limiting several products to just two per shopper. The Florida-based grocery chain said that the decision came "due to ongoing supply issues and increased holiday demand."

Some items on Publix list are Thanksgiving staples and some are not: 

  • Canned cranberry sauce
  • Jarred gravy
  • Canned pie filling
  • Canola and vegetable oil
  • Cream cheese
  • Bacon
  • Rolled breakfast sausage
  • Paper napkins
  • Disposable plates, cups, and cutlery
  • Bath tissue
  • Refrigerated snacks (Lunchable type items)
  • Sports drinks
  • Aseptic type juices (Capri Sun)
  • Canned cat food (Variety packs)
  • Refrigerated pet food

Now, Winn-Dixie says it is limiting the number of turkeys customers can buy to just one. 

Meredith Hurley, director of public relations and community for Southeastern Grocers which owns Winn-Dixie, told the Orlando Sentinel that while it is not limiting other holiday food items, the grocery chain is asking that customers only purchase what they need for their families.
