Here is another recall warning :(. If you have purchased this product, please bring the unused portion back to the store for a full refund. There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of this product. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency didn’t list dates the product as sold. If you are aware of when this product was sold – please post it in the comments
Costco does keep track of each member’s purchases and does attempt to contact members who may have purchased the recalled product through an automated phone system. This is a good time to go to the membership desk to make sure they have the correct contact information for you (especially if you have moved or changed phone numbers since you have originally purchased your membership).
Did you know that Costco lists all product recalls on its website Costco.ca (under Product Notices on the bottom menu) and in-store? In the stores I have visited, the product recall list is on a bulletin board usually near the exit of the store by employees checking receipts.
For more information please refer to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency Notice: http://www.inspection.gc.ca/about-the-cfia/newsroom/food-recall-warnings/complete-listing/2016-05-09b/eng/1462850202306/1462850205064
