COSTCO has recalled two popular products due to health risks.
The company’s bone broth and exclusive mattresses are being removed from shelves due to contamination.
Bone broth, popular for making chicken soup, is being recalled due to concerns about microbial contamination.
The special broth is Culinary Treasures Organic Chicken Bone Broth, available in both a carton and package.
Only certain cans of broth are being recalled by Costco, specifically those sold in the Southeast with lot number 98E08242. The best before date for these broths is February 23, 2024.
Microbes themselves are not very dangerous, but they can increase the rate at which food spoils.
They can also promote the growth of more dangerous bacteria.
The mattresses that Costco is recalling have an increased risk of mold.
Manufacturer FXI is recalling 48,000 mattresses that were sold exclusively at Costco.
The Novaform ComfortGrande 14-inch and Novaform DreamAway 8-inch mattresses were sold in the San Francisco Bay Area from January 2023 to June 2023.
The two mattresses were also available online.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission received 541 reports of mold. The commission said the mattresses may have been exposed to water during manufacturing.
“The ComfortGrande 14-inch mattress has a blue base with “Novaform” printed in white letters. “DreamAway’s 8-inch mattress has a gray base with “Novaform” printed in white letters,” the CPSC said.
Costo also directly contacts anyone who has purchased one of these mattresses.
The US Sun has reached out to Costco for comment.
