Manufacturers set up production schedules way ahead of time. Retooling for another product costs time and money, so many times, a manufacturer will run an entire year's worth of product at one time - based on past history, Since past history most likely includes PRE panic sales data, sometimes certain products may be short on supply.
Since many makers also practice JIT delivery of components/materials well in advance as well, they may not be able to readjust their scheduling without a lot of hassle
