Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone!
Just wanted to leave a quick note about an important product recall happening right now involving Cottonelle Flushable Wipes.
Here’s the info from the Costco.ca website.
Kimberly-Clark is recalling certain lot codes of Cottonelle® Flushable Wipes due to a potential microbial contamination. The impacted products sold by Costco are listed below:
Some of the recalled products may have the presence of a common household microorganism, Pluralibacter gergovaie. Individuals who have a weakened immune system, suffer from a serious preexisting condition, have been treated surgically, or belong to another sensitive group of persons are at particular risk of infection if they use the contaminated product. At this time there is a low rate of non-serious complaints, such as irritation and minor infection, reported for the affected wipes.

If you believe you have one the 10 pack of Cottonelle® Flushable Wipes (Costco Item 2095369) in your possession, immediately stop using the product. You may return the 10 pack of Cottonelle® Flushable Wipes to a Costco warehouse to obtain a full refund on your next visit.

As with any recall make sure you check the product numbers and names and if you have any of these products DO NOT USE THEM, either throw them away or return them to where you purchased them. Even though they’re saying this bacterium rarely causes serious infections in healthy people it’s always better to err on the side of caution. (At least I think so)
On that note folks I hope you all stay safe, have a great day and as always I’ll be seeing you tomorrow night for the Costco Weekend Update, cheers!
Costco Online bookings for the flu shot are now available!
It’s true folks, you can make an appointment online to get a flu shot at your Costco warehouse during your normal shop, or plan your shopping trip around the flu shot… Either way it’s a win!

As we are headed in to the second wave of COVID-19 and kids are heading back to school I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the corona virus weeds yet, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment and I would recommend that you follow the recommendations for your specific province. Information can be found at the following websites.
So there you go, a little reading material for you.
Be kind, be safe and stay healthy!
