McDonald's restaurants in Japan are to start restricting sales of french fries to small portions due to a delay in imports caused by a port worker strike in the United States.

McDonald's restaurants in Japan are to start restricting sales of french fries to small portions due to a delay in imports caused by a port worker strike in the United States, a news report said Tuesday.

The company will stop selling medium and large portions of french fries from Wednesday morning at about 3,100 stores across Japan, the Kyodo News agency reported.

The strike is obstructing the import of processed potatoes from the US West Coast, the fast food chain said.

If progress is made in the labour negotiations and import conditions normalize, the company plans to resume selling fries in the other sizes.

"This is a measure we've decided to take because we might run out of fries. We apologize to customers for the inconvenience," a company official said.
