Consumer Alert: United States facing whipped cream shortage

Posted: Updated:
MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

You might have to enjoy your holiday pie without whipped cream this year. 

The United States is facing a not so sweet shortage of canned whipped cream, like Reddi-wip. 

Nitrous oxide is what aerosol cans use to push out their contents. Now, the gas is in short supply thanks to an explosion at a nitrous oxide plant in Florida. 

Some coffee chains have already cut back on whipped cream on some drinks. 

The maker of Reddi-wip said the full supply is not expected to be up and running until February.
