Costco Just Recalled a Popular Deli Item

The product was sold in select warehouses across multiple regions.

Over the last few weeks, multiple retailers have pulled all sorts of items from the shelves, ranging from spinach to smoked salmon to canned coffee. Now, Costco is adding to the growing list of this year's food recalls.

On July 3, the warehouse club announced the recall of its Ancient Grain + Vegetable Salad (item#25247), saying that its Grain + Celery Salad was incorrectly labeled as this item. This mismarked product may contain soy and almonds—two major allergens that are not listed on the label.

This mislabeling could pose the risk of a severe life-threatening reaction to people with an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy or almonds.
