Costco Canada Recall

Voluntary Recall of Costco Canada Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars

We have chosen to initiate a recall after detecting salmonella in a batch of dark chocolate coconut bars. Although that affected product has never left our production facility, we chose to recall all product with nearby production dates, out of an abundance of caution.

Salmonella was never detected in any product that was shipped or sold. The reason why we have decided to initiate this recall is because we think it’s the right thing to do.

Which product is affected?

This voluntary recall only affects specific Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars sold in Canadian Costco locations. No product sold in the United States is impacted.
