Costco has records of every member who bought this product. Maybe they should proactively email them or something.

Just stopped by my Costco (MV location) yesterday 6/4 only to see the berries STILL in the frozen goods section! I'm hoping they've removed all bags since then. Also, I was never contacted directly by Costco and found out about the outbreak through the news- a week ago.

If I saw these berries on the shelf at Costco I would go to the manager and demand that he take them off of the shelf now with me watching. If he refused I would call the City of Mountain View while I was still in the store, if possible with the manager watching me make the call.

Sounds like Walmart Strikes Back to me. Walmart hates Costco. Costco pays a minimum of $19.50 an hour, and their CEO only pays himself $500,000 or so per year.
