UNITED STATES - MARCH 24: Marshmallow candy Peeps chicks move down a conveyor belt to be boxed and shipped inside the Just Born Inc. manufacturing facility in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, U.S., on Tuesday, March 24, 2009. Easter celebrations will involve less candy, flowers and decorations this year as consumers cut spending amid a global recession. Consumers plan to spend an average of $116.59 on the Easter holiday this year, 14 percent less than last year, according to a survey conducted by the National Retail Federation.

Oh no!  Being safe is obviously the most important factor right now, but it’s wild how much is affected by the shutdown.  The company doesn’t think there will be a huge shortage though, so that’s good!

Here are the details:

Just Born suspended production on Wednesday and will do so at least through April 7, the company said in a statement.

The GOOD news:  They will continue to pay their employees, who are working remotely, they said. The company has made Peeps in Pennsylvania for 67 years, and a large supply has already shipped to retailers from their factories in Bethlehem and Philadelphia, according to Just Born, the family-owned confectionery company that makes Peeps, as well as Mike and Ike, Hot Tamales, Teenee Beanee jelly beans, and Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews.
