Recall Alert for Costco, Whole Foods Broths

Though the companies have received no reports of illness, Costco and Whole Foods say the recalled organic chicken and beef broth products could spoil early due to microbial contamination.

Whole Foods Market and Costco are voluntarily recalling organic chicken and beef broth products due to potential contamination. The Costco recall involves organic chicken bone broth, and the Whole Foods Market recall includes three 365 by Whole Foods Market organic chicken and beef broth products.

The recalled products may have the potential for microbial contamination due to a lack of sterility assurance, according to Treehouse Foods, Inc., the product’s supplier. Though not a health or safety concern at this time, the recalled broths may spoil prematurely, the company says.
