Interesting, maybe more people are eating ground turkey, hence the shortage of dark meat...

Ground turkey, or minced turkey, is a mixture of dark and light turkey meat with remaining skin and visible fat processed together until a "ground" form emerges.[1][2] The turkey meat, skin, and fat is taken off the bone and processed with additives.[3] The final product has specific characteristics that appeal to customers, including a non pink color and non crumbly texture.[3] The composition of ground turkey is driven by market demand, availability, and meat prices. The majority of ground turkey is made from excess thighs and drumsticks rather than the more costly breast meat. Ground turkey was known for being significantly cheaper and healthier than ground beef, but as its popularity has risen, so has the price. Now it is often more expensive than ground beef.
