Costco Just Announced a Recall for This Beloved Drink

This weekend, Costco has issued a recall announcement to advise of a serious food safety issue occurring with a popular beverage. Other recall advisory sites had not published the news before the weekend, but we've got the details on this Costco recall announcement you need to know.

On their website and reportedly via their mobile alerts system for customers who have purchased this product, Costco has published a recall announcement on behalf of the Kraft Heinz Company and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The recall is for Kool-Aid Tropical Punch Mix, which the warehouse chain cites as item number 95740. This is for Kool-Aid Tropical Punch Mix specifically in 82.5-ounce containers, bearing "Best When Used By" dates of 2023-08-31 and 2023-09-01.

The reason for this recall is "the potential presence of foreign material, specifically very small pieces of metal or glass."

Costco says this Kool-Aid recall applies to select Costco Business Centers, as well as Costco warehouses in the Los Angeles region and the Northwest Region. If you've purchased this product in the regions indicated, Costco recommends that you do not consume it and instead return it to your local Costco for a full refund. Signed from the Kraft Heinz Company, the recall announcement says: "We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused."

This Costco recall announcement comes just weeks after the October 19, 2021 recall announcement for some Midwest customers on Ivar's Clam Chowder with Uncured Bacon, which the Ivar's brand said was "due to the possibility that the product may be contaminated with hard, sharp opaque plastic pieces."

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year.

Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That!

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger.

At the time, we were bombarded with (admittedly, very helpful) advice on how to cope with anxiety , should we experience it during this time of social distancing and sheltering in place. But with restrictions slowly starting to ease in many parts of the world, there are many people who have seen an increase in anxiety all over again, this time about leaving their homes and reentering society. Posts about people's growing anxiety have been popping up around social media for the past couple of weeks, and it's given rise to the term "reentry anxiety."
