Former Vice President Joe Biden, who presently occupies the White House, warned Americans in March that a “food shortage” is coming. LifeSiteNews recently highlighted a report by Fox News host Tucker Carlson on this Biden prediction.

Tucker Carlson: Disturbing number of food plant disasters are contributing to shortage fears
(LifeSiteNews) — An extraordinary number of disasters at food processing plants around the United States is contributing to grave concerns that the West is being threatened with food shortages.
In an April 25 broadcast, Fox News host Tucker Carlson explained, “America [has] the most fertile farmland in the world, it’s always had some of the cheapest food prices in the world. That could be changing.”
“All of a sudden, prices are skyrocketing for staples, your grocery store is not full. It means that our country’s food supply is not secure,” he said.
Contributing to these dangerous trends are a curious number of explosions, fires and even two plane crashes into food processing or storage facilities around the nation.
Fox contributor Trace Gallagher reported this bizarre trend, showing that on average, between 2017 and 2019 there were six to eight such incidents per year at these facilities. After skipping statistical readings in 2020 due to COVID-related government lockdowns, this number jumped to 11 in 2021.
“But already in the first four months of 2022, there have been 17 major incidents,” Gallagher reported. “We’re talking fires, chemical leaks, explosions, and in the span of just one week, during the safest point in aviation history, we also had two planes that crashed into food plants.”
While plane crashes are always investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board, Gallagher noted, “it’s interesting that, despite the bad timing, and a huge uptick in destruction of food plants, so far, there does not appear to be a public and widescale investigation by either the FDA or the Department of Agriculture (USDA).”
“We’re not saying any one group is responsible for these fires. We don’t really know what this is about. But we do know it’s happening during what is turning out to be a disastrous year for food production in the United States,” Carlson explained.
