A large number of food companies have announced a shortage of supplies due to ‘preppers’ (survivalists) and concerned citizens stockpiling food in the event of a ‘catastrophic event’ occurring in September 2015.
Various reports on an imminent “September event” have been widely reported, with some believing it to be related to the current U.S. military exercise known as “Jade Helm 15“, whilst other say that natural disasters such as earthquakes and comet’s are going to rock the planet.
“While both Preparewise and Buy Emergency Foods EXPECT these items to be back in stock in 3 to 4 weeks, the fact that both of these websites are experiencing overwhelming demand and currently COMPLETELY out of some of the most basic food groups should tell everybody a few things,” ANP reported. “Americans are buying up these products in HUGE numbers as more and more Americans have come to expect a reason to need these items at some point in the future.
“If you are one of those people who has waited until now to buy your survival food for emergencies, we hope you’re able to stock up before none of these items are available. As stated above, there are still a number of websites that are still selling bulk items and this webpage lists their favorite top 10 sites,” ANP said.
While it is uncertain exactly what is fueling demand, ANP suggested that the proprietors of one survival retailer, Preparewise, thinks it has something to do with a “September event.” The retailer, and ANP, did not elaborate.
Run on survival foods related to Jade Helm 15?
An update to the original story noted that, while many retailers still had a number of products, if demand were to surge due to some event, those supplies would vanish in 24 hours.
“We have been informed that several outlets still have many products and supplies available but when panic hits, they will all be gone in a day. From what we understand, Ready Reserve Foods is one of the online retailers that still has a great deal of stock remaining as does Ready Made Resources according to sources,” ANP reported.
Natural News has long reported on the need for families and individuals to prepare for a time when, due to natural disaster, riots, war or an economic collapse, “the system” of civil society breaks down and it is impossible to rely on existing infrastructures of electricity and food distribution, police protection, military defense and banking.
No sense waiting until the last moment
In January, using the example of economic collapse, we reported on how to cut costs and prepare for a day when, perhaps, the U.S. dollar loses its value.
But there is lots of additional information on the Web; a Good Gopher search using the phrase “survive a collapse” turned up thousands of articles.
As for the “September event,” some believe it could be tied to the current U.S. military Special Forces exercise known as “Jade Helm 15.” Begun in mid-July and involving more than 1,000 special operations forces from nearly all service branches, the exercise is scheduled to conclude in mid-September.
