The restaurant says if the price of avocados keeps rising,  it will be forced to take the popular item off its menu.

Scientists predict a 40% drop in the crop over the next few decades due to dry temperatures, causing the price to spike.

Chipotle uses an estimated 97,000 pounds of the fruit every day.
