TP cores...

Heard a strange tale this week.
My neighbour was looking for supplies, taking relatives with health issues to a vacation home for extra isolation.  Said he'd found small stores up in the mountains which still had stocks and bought what they needed.
Apparently, or so I'm told, there is a toilet paper manufacturer in northern Pennsylvania, which distributes locally (plausible, there is plenty of softwood up there).

But, the little cores in the centers of the rolls, those are apparently made in China, and are in short supply. So this toilet paper manufacturer is distributing the rolls without a core cardboard cylinder until they can set up to get alternative suppliers, or make their own.

Literally could not make this up. 
So.., it must be true, right?
