Fears of French fries shortage alleviated; but intestines needed

[OFF THE POST] The Swiss government has agreed to ease potato import restrictions following fears of a French fries shortage during next month's European Championship, which the Swiss are co-hosting with Austria. The policy change makes way for the importation of an additional 5,600 tons of potatoes. The possibility of a sausage shortage, however, remains.

Supplies of Switzerland's national sausage, the cervelat, have dwindled since the European Union's ban on Brazilian cows' intestines, which are used to encase the meat.

Sausage suppliers are looking to Paraguayan cows for sausage casings.

The Swiss consume 160 million of the short, stubby sausages per year.
