Costco recalls packaged sliced fruit over Salmonella concerns

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 11:46 a.m. HST, Mar 14, 2014

Costco has recalled a packaged fruit item because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella.

Costco said the product can be identified by the package information as follows:

Kirkland Signature Real Sliced Fruit
Item: 527069
Best By Date: Feb. 14, 2015-March 11, 2015

The recalled products may be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious infections in young children, frail or elderly people and those with weakened immune systems, Costco said in a letter posted on its website.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Customers are advised to return it immediately to local Costco for a full refund.

People with questions or concerns, can call 1-888-641-2933 or email at recall@ofd.com.

Costco had a recall on shelled almond nuts once and we ate about quarter package and got a full refund. A few weeks later they had a similar brand of shelled almond on the shelves again. Didn't bother picking them up that time. Just didn't want take a chance.

I like Costco. Up front about it's products. Great help. You don't like it...Bring it back. Best return policy in the country. I saw a guy bring back half a large bag of dog food. I guess the dog wasn't fond of it.
