Is There a Shortage of Cannellini Beans?

Good Questions

Q: For the past couple months, my Whole Foods (Dupont Circle) has been out of cannellini beans. I had just started incorporating them into a lot of my meals, but every week I go in there, and the shelf is completely bare! Other grocery stores have been out as well.

No one at the WF could give me an explanation as to why the beans have disappeared. I've tried Googling "cannellini beans shortage" and keep being referred to a shortage in November '08. Any ideas? I wanted to see if anybody else has noticed this!
