Wendy's spokesman Bob Bertini says the policy could end in a few weeks when new crops become available.
Citrus growers in the sunshine state have a different problem. Not only did hurricanes devastate the crop with an estimated $2.2 billion in damages, but they have allegedly spread citrus plant diseases.
Agriculture officials are reviewing a state law that requires the destruction of citrus trees within a 1,900-foot radius of one infected with citrus canker, a disease known for creating unsightly lesions on fruit.
Citrus growers are seeking to ease the 1,900-foot law and two Florida growers have sued the state, challenging the constitutionality of the eradication program and its right to destroy property without paying compensation.
