TOKYO -- McDonald's Holdings Japan said Friday it will stop selling medium- and large-sized portions of fries for about a month, starting Sunday, due to delays in imports. This will mark the second time the Japanese company has restricted sales of fried potatoes after a weeklong suspension in late December.

Shipments of fried potatoes from Canada are facing delays due to heavy snowfall in that country and bad weather at sea, according to the company.
