In-N-Out Burgers closed its Texas restaurants Monday following a problem with the quality of its buns.

Texas has more than 12 million head of cattle, but on Tuesday it had no Double-Doubles.

If you live in Texas and have a hankering for a Double-Double or some Animal-Style fries, turns out you're going to have wait before getting your In-N-Out fix. The company confirmed to KENS 5 the closure was due to a quality control issue with the recent shipment of hamburger buns.

At In-N-Out Burgers, we have always served the highest quality food with no compromise. The stores had been expected to reopen on Tuesday but remained closed.

Later that afternoon, In-N-Out Burger executive vice president Bob Lang Jr. said in a news release that the buns the restaurant served did not present any food safety concerns. All of the restaurants are serviced by the company's distribution center in Dallas.

The Austin American-Statesman and KXAN news reported the company temporarily closed because the buns did not meet the quality standards they expect.

It has plans to open locations in a seventh state - Colorado - in the coming years.
