After a bun crisis plaguing Texas burger restaurants hit Whataburger and Raising Cane's Wednesday, the return of bread products began Thursday at "most" Whataburger locations.
The Whataburger chain removed white buns and Texas toast from some restaurants Wednesday. Hours later, signs began to appear on Raising Cane's locations saying their toast had been pulled.
The restaurant's corporate communications team said the recall was due to a "quality issue" and said it was making deliveries "around the clock to replenish our entire selection of white bread."
Whataburger says there was no health risk with their bread.
Raising Cane's, a popular chicken restaurant with several DFW locations, announced a recall of their Texas toast just hours after Whataburger on Wednesday.
"At Raising Cane’s, we never sacrifice quality and because of this, our Texas restaurants are regrettably not serving our Texas toast," read a statement from the company. "This is not a food safety issue. Our bread delivery did not meet our high quality standards for taste and therefore we are offering customers a substitution of another side item or additional chicken finger. We are hoping to have this resolved by [Thursday]."
An "unbalance in the yeast" affected the flavor of Whataburger's buns and the company recalled them from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, according to a statement from the San Antonio-based Whataburger corporate office.
WFAA's Chris Sadeghi taste-tested the restaurant's Texas toast live on News 8 Daybreak early Thursday morning:
Whataburger stores never closed and continued to serve burgers and sandwiches on wheat buns, tortillas or as a bunless platter at restaurants still without bread, the company said.
The bread recall at Whataburger and Raising Cane's came the same day as Texas locations of California-based In-N-Out Burger reopened after closing two days to replace a batch of buns.
"There's no health risk at all, rather an impact on our bun's flavor," the corporate statement read.
