(KWWL) -- If you've been shopping for meat recently, you may have had a tough time finding exactly what you're looking for.
Hy-Vee will now start limiting meat purchases of customers due to COVID-19 related shortages.
Starting Wednesday, customers will be limited to four packages of a combination of fresh beef, ground beef, pork and chicken.
This will be enforced at checkout and applies to all Hy-Vee locations.
Hy-Vee says they have product available, but because of worker shortages at meat plants and an increase in consumer demand for meat, they will be limiting sales.
