Organic Dark Chocolate Blueberries

"Torn Ranch is recalling these 18oz bags (lot code 1271 and Best By 05/07/2022 date) due to the possible presence of almonds, an undeclared allergen (tree nuts)," a recall notice posted on Costco's website on May 19 says. "People with tree nut allergies may have a life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product."

The bags of blueberries were sold in Arkansas, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. There are no reports of any illnesses due to the mislabeling, but if you have them in your home you should stop eating them immediately.


Tin Star Foods Ghee

Costco Ghee

Thanks to its membership system, Costco can see which customers purchased recalled items. That's how they delivered the info to those who bought the 22.5-ounce jar of Tin Star Foods 100% Grassfed Ghee between March 19 and May 27 of this year. The product is one of the most recent recalls posted on the Costco website because Tin Star Foods detected a quality issue that has shortened the shelf life of the product.

Customers with any questions can also contact TIn Star Foods directly at 800-798-1334 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST or email them at Customerservice@tinstarfoods.com.

Two recalls for beans sold at Costco and other retail stores have been announced in the last two months because the cans may have a compromised hermetic seal that could leak, bloat, or allow harmful bacteria like Clostridium botulinum to grow. The original recall was sent out in late April, with the second following in mid-May.

Sixteen lot numbers and three types of beans are involved, including S&W Organic Black Beans, O Organics Organic Black Beans, and O Organics Organic Chili Beans. They were sold as far back as August 2020 at Costco stores in California, Washington, Utah, Oregon, Arizona, Colorado, Alaska, Hawaii, Texas, Georgia, and Idaho.

"Symptoms [of a Clostridium botulinum infection] may include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and muscle weakness. Botulism poisoning can cause paralysis of the breathing muscles, which can result in death unless assistance with breathing (mechanical ventilation) is provided," the recall notice says.
