Kirkland Dog Biscuits Discontinued

Why Did People Think That Costco Kirkland Dog Biscuits Was Discontinued?

Amazingly, Costco Kirkland Dog Biscuits has not had any recalls in the past and is loved by many dog owners who have tried it.

There was a recent panic on popular social media sites and forums about the product being discontinued, which led to people believing that Costco would no longer sell it. This is not the case, as there was only a shortage of the product during that time period.

Since the company chose not to disclose any information on their third-party manufacturer, it is hard to know if other products made by them have been recalled in the past.

According to the pest control experts at Ehrlich, these tiny, reddish-brown bugs are common throughout the world and can be known to invade a variety of foods including flour, bread, and spices. They can quickly become a problem in your pantry because the females can lay up to 100 eggs at a time. Dry pet food, as the Costco Redditor can attest, is not an uncommon source of these pests.

Before you throw away your Costco doggie treats, however, the author of the post asked if any other purchasers had experienced this problem — and, so far, only a few commenters had a similar issue.

Costco shoppers are well known for sharing their latest finds on social media. Usually, the response is positive when everyones favorite warehouse store drops a new item, such as this Ice Cream Party Box or Plant-Based French Onion Dip . But, every once in a while, the buyers at Costco put a dud on the shelves, or worse, sell something with unexpected quality issues.

Most people that responded to the Reddit post shrugged off the issue, saying these things happen because the packages naturally “have small holes and gaps” through which critters are occasionally prone to enter, and “the standards for human food and animal food are different.”

There are a few things you can do, though. Inspecting dry goods when you bring them home is a great way to prevent infestation. Tiny clusters of pin-point holes in bags or boxes indicates drugstore beetle activity, but sometimes immature larvae can be present, so its good to always be on the lookout for mature adults, even in food youve had for weeks. You can also help eliminate all food sources for drugstore beetles by storing food in sealed containers like glass jars. One Reddit commentor also had a great suggestion: “Try putting [the treats] in the freezer for a couple weeks when you bring them home. I do this with any grain products,” they said.
