If you shop at Costco, there are three recall alerts out on their products that you need to know about. People often load up on tons of groceries at Costco—that’s the point of the wholesale retailer, after all. However, it’s important that you know whether the items you put in your cart are actually safe for you or not! Let’s take a look at the latest recalls on these Costco items.
The first item covered in the new recall is a frozen food dinner called Don Lee Green Chili Shredded Chicken & Rice Cauliflower Bowls. The recall was implemented a few weeks ago, but it’s worth checking your freezer to see if you have items in this product line with “best if used by” dates between May 11, 2022, and June 1, 2022.
The recall notice relates to pieces of plastic that were detected in some of the recalled products. The specific ingredient in the product that is under recall is green chili, which one of the suppliers has warned could be contaminated with plastic.
The next recall is on assorted meat trays sold at some Costco locations, which could be contaminated with salmonella. The affected meat products were sold between February 18, 2021 and August 18, 2021. If you bought any of these meat trays between those dates, check your refrigerator. The items in question have a “best if used by” date of February 11, 2022, meaning that it could still be in your fridge if you shop at Costco.
Salmonella can cause rough gastrointestinal issues for people who ingested affected foods. Make sure you discard this product if you’ve purchased it from Costco.
Finally, Costco customers need to be aware of a recall on Neutrogena Beach Defense Sunscreen. This item was recalled over the summer due to the presence of a chemical called benzene, which has been linked in some studies to cancers in the blood.
The items included in this recall that were sold at Costco include the 60 SPF and 70 SPF varieties, which you should discontinue the use of and discard. You can, of course, return to the Costco you purchased the product from with your receipt and receive a full refund on the items, as with all official recall notices. In any case, don’t use this sunscreen!
