Costco Just Pulled These 4 Items From Warehouses

Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer are just around the corner, and members are loading up on supplies at Costco. However, several items will not be available because of concerns about their safety.

One of the perks of being a Costco member is having a history of your purchases just a click away online. This system tracks every product purchased with your membership card while giving Costco a way to see who bought what, when, and where. This means that when a product is deemed unsafe—due to manufacturing issues, recalls, or possible contaminations—the warehouse chain can alert every member who bought it.

Costco also posts information on its website, and four of the most recent items include two foods and two household items. Here's what you need to know.

Costco is involved in the massive Jif peanut butter recall.

In addition to other stores like Walmart, ALDI, and more, Costco revealed on its Recalls & Product Recalls page that two of the items involved in the recent Jif peanut butter recall were sold in its warehouses nationwide. Those who purchased jars of Crunchy and/or Creamy peanut butter under either a  #917538 or #917546 item number should not eat the affected product and can go to any warehouse for a refund, the company says in a notice sent to members.

Cheese is also recalled at specific warehouses.

The most recent recall notice publically posted by Costco is for Frigo Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese. The 2-pound package was sold at only San Diego, Calif.-area warehouses between February and May 2022, and is being pulled from the refrigerated section because it does not include an ingredient on the label—milk. If someone with an allergy or sensitivity to milk unknowingly consumes the cheese, it could cause a severe or life-threatening reaction.

The notice is addressed to Costco members who purchased it and says that the recall only applies to this item. Like the Jif peanut butter, members with this item in their home can return it to their Costco location for a full refund.

Two other notices about products not available right now have to do with household items.

Warmer weather is here but Costco members who purchased a ceiling fan to help stay cool may have a hard time putting it together and can get parts replaced. Atomi Smart WiFi Ceiling Fans involved were sold between March 2 and May 16, 2022.

"Some members may have trouble attaching ceiling fan blades with the supplied blade screws and
washers," the company says in an alert to members. "Select fans were packaged with fan blade screws that may be short, causing difficulty when attempting to attach the ceiling fan blades." Anyone who is concerned can email Atomi Smart Technical Support at

The other household item that is a subject of an alert to members who purchased it is a chest sold between December 2019 and April 2020. The delayed product recall comes as the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says that "the chests are unstable if they are not properly anchored to the wall, posing tipover and entrapment hazards that can result in death or serious injuries to children," according to a notice.

Anyone with the Universal Broadmoore Cayden Gentleman's 9-Drawer Chest can return it to their local Costco for a full refund, mail the drawer slides back for a full refund, or contact Samson International for free installation and tip-over restraint kit.

Other items also may not be available, but not due to potential dangers.

Several items that are staples at Summer backyard BBQs, pool parties, and picnics also may not be there when you get to the warehouse to shop soon, as they are soaring in popularity. Things like certain BBQ sauce, dessert kits, certain bakery items, and more are all making their way into many carts right now.

However, these are The Best Costco Backyard BBQ Basics Right Now.

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. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

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. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw

Reentry Anxiety Is Real - Why You May Experience It as Stay-at-Home Measures Ease

When the coronavirus stay-at-home orders began in March, most people's lives changed in immeasurable ways. 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." We wanted to find out exactly what reentry anxiety is, whether it's normal to be experiencing trepidation about leaving your stay-at-home orders, and how to cope if you are feeling anxious.
