Updated February 9, 2024: Costco has issued 8 voluntary product recalls in connection with a potential Listeria contamination of a cheese or dairy ingredient supplied by Rizo-Lopez Foods, Inc. Although the FDA and the company sate that this is a voluntary recall, the issue in question is Listeria, which I think should be taken very seriously, and I absolutely would encourage you to discontinue consuming any of the products in question. The 8 Costco recalls include the following affected products: Rojo’s 6 Layer Dip, Don Pancho Cilantro Lime Crema, Kirkland Signature Southwest Chicken Wrap, Don Pancho Crema Trio Pack, Kirkland Signature Chicken Street Taco Kit, The Perfect Bite Mexican Style Street Corn Bites, Queso Crunch Salad Kit and Maverick Foods Chipotle Chicken & Rice Bowl.
At this time, the Company states that the recall is a voluntary Class 1 recall due to potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination. This means that the Costco products being recalled are done so in “an abundance of caution” however consumers should stop consuming the affected product and return the unused portion to their local Costco for a full refund. More items are being added to this recall daily, we’ll try to update this post as more are added, so check back daily or head over to the Costco Recalls website to see all the most up to date recalls.
ProTip: Although Costco does contact individual members who purchased these items via email, please keep in mind that only the primary member on each Costco membership receives product safety and recall emails. If you share your membership with other household members who may have purchased these items, you may consider forwarding this along to them as they will not have received the Costco recall alert emails.
What is Listeria?
Listeria is a bacteria that can lead to severe, and in some cases, deadly infections. It poses a higher risk to young children, the elderly, and individuals with compromised immune systems. While healthy individuals might experience only temporary symptoms such as high fever, intense headaches, stiffness, nausea, stomach pain, and diarrhea, the infection is particularly dangerous for pregnant women, as it can result in miscarriages and stillbirths.
8 New Costco Recalls
The products sold by Costco which contained the affected ingredient include the following items. Please note that some are related to specific lot numbers or sell by dates, others are broader with a window of sales dates. Please reference each individual recall letter for the specifics on each product recall. You can download these Costco product recall letters or find them on the Costco recall page of Costco’s website.
ProTip: Please also double check your freezer – if you dropped any of these in your freezer for later, be sure to double check those items too!
