Stars and Stripes reports that “the Defense Commissary Agency said Wednesday it is working to fix problems that have led to critical shortages in perishable products at military base supermarkets in the Pacific and Europe.”  

“Union negotiations and computer glitches over the past month have held up shipments of yogurt, lunch meat, butter and fresh bone-in meat, according to the agency. In Europe, a breakdown in the DeCA distribution system prevented about 40 percent of frozen foods from being distributed.”
