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.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have been purchasing these Kirkland Dog Biscuits for a while now. They come in a large box. There is quite a bit of bones in the box. They are also larger than average. Therefore, they are great if you have a larger dog. My dog really seems to enjoy it. I believe its about 19.99$ for a box, Well worth the price.
My dogs go crazy for these treats, they just love them. There are plenty of treats in this box and lasted us I think 2 or 3 months. My two dogs consume 1-2 per day so that is 2-4 per day. The price is amazing for how many comes and the ingredients are healthy as well.
My dog loves these biscuits, if she could write her own review she would tell you that they taste fantastic, offer a ton of flavor and you cant just eat one! Her human (thats me), would say that they are made of quality ingredients, a great price for such a large box.
