Adding to the struggle that seems to follow today’s grocery store woes, there’s yet another recall that shoppers need to be aware of. And this time it involves a major name wholesale retailer who usually fills our day with good news (think pumpkin pie cost decrease, Black Friday shopping hacks, and pantry staples). 

According to Food Safety News, Costco is pulling its Kirkland Signature Pine Nut Hummus from store shelves and the recall is due to something you may not have expected: mold. 

“We have identified some mold issues on the pine nut topping on one code date on this item,” the company said in a letter to members. The products were reportedly sold between September 21 and October 18. 

Have this hummus on repeat at your household? Here’s what to check for when it comes to what you have in your fridge: the brand’s Pine Nut spread with the code date “Best Before NOV 26 2022” (you can find the info at the top of the container). If you do happen to have one of these less-than-desirable tubs, you can return the product directly to Costco for a full refund.
