Answer Man: No shortage of dental floss
from Post Bulletin
We have been on a quest to purchase dental floss, being the dentally aware family that we are. At each store we've checked, the shelves are bare. What's the deal? Is there a current national shortage of dental floss? Or a manufacturing deficiency? What are we and other diligent flossers to do? Please help us, Answer Man. You're our only hope. —Frustrated about Floss
Sorry, Flossy, but I can't find any evidence of a critical national shortage of this product. I called some local pharmacies and stores and they say there's enough floss to go around, so I'll just recommend that you keep trying.
