With the threat of a nationwide beef shortage rearing its ugly head, fast food giant Wendy’s appears to have found a powerful ally. Clara Peller, the 1980’s icon renowned for her beef sleuthing, has returned from retirement and the grave to address the situation. With as many as 20% of franchises unable to provide the beef, Clara feels she is needed now more than ever.

In a written statement from her publicist, Ms. Peller reportedly asked, “Where’s the beef?”

We reached out to Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas, but have received no reply at the time of this writing.
