Buyers of farts in jars should expect to pay higher prices this month from the nation’s #1 supplier, Stephanie Matto.

Matto, whose air biscuits are highly prized among collectors of bottom breezers, was forced to shut down production after a major health scare.

The reality TV star was rushed to a hospital with chest pains she feared were symptoms of a heart attack, according to the New York Post.

After undergoing a battery of tests, including blood work and an EKG, Matto, was informed that the demands of her profession, which include a constant diet of beans and protein, were the culprit.

“I thought I was having a stroke and that these were my final moments,” Matto told Jam Press. “I was overdoing it.”

The self-proclaimed “fartrepreneuer” had squeezed out up to 50 jars’ worth of farts a week to keep up with demand. She’d recently added protein shakes to her regimen to increase the pungency of her pooters.

“I remember within one day I had about three protein shakes and a huge bowl of black bean soup,” she said.

Matto gained international recognition after appearing on the reality show “90 Day Fiancé” and later started her own YouTube channel, wrote books, and founded an X-rated subscription site called Unfiltrd.

Prior to her health scare, Matto was earning up to $50,000 per week selling her monstrous methane in masons.

“I could tell that something was not right that evening when I was lying in bed and I could feel a pressure in my stomach moving upward. It was quite hard to breathe, and every time I tried to breathe in, I’d feel a pinching sensation around my heart,” Matto told Jam Press.

“And that, of course, made my anxiety escalate. I actually called my friend and asked if they could come over to drive me to the hospital because I thought I was experiencing a heart attack,” she said.

“It was made clear that what I was experiencing wasn’t a stroke or heart attack but very intense gas pains,” Matto told the outlet.

“I was advised to change my diet and to take a gas suppressant medication, which has effectively ended my business,” she said.

Although she’s been forced into retirement, Matto hopes to remain an inspiration to young entrepreneurs everywhere.

“I have a lot of people praising me, calling me a girl boss, telling me that I inspire them to be unashamed of who they are and what they do,” she said.

Matto has big plans for the future and intends to donate a portion of her future income to a charity that supports gastric disorders.

“Even though I got backlash, I think it has opened a new door for me. I’m working on digital fart jar artwork at the moment,” Matto said.
