The plastic barrels and other accessories are coming to the end of their life cycle, and it will take time to replace them, according to Walmart, Best Beef, Walmart, and Target.
The accessories were designed to store food and other non-food items that may be damaged by a hurricane.
Walmart has been selling the barrels since 2014 and is one of the companies that has been aggressively testing them out in its stores.
“The barrels have been an important part of our supply chain for decades,” Walmart spokesman Steve Gorman said in a statement.
“They have helped keep customers safe in our stores, and they continue to be an important component of our retail supply chain.”
In December, Walmart reported a $3.5 billion loss.
The company has been trying to expand its plastic barrel business in recent years, and the price has increased.
Last month, the company said it would sell its own plastic barrel for $2,100 to replace a plastic barrel it lost in a storm.
Walmart also has its own container-based plastic barrel company, the Aqualand Container.
