Costco’s first recall notice of September went out on September 21, to members who had purchased Rainbow Road Board Books. The publishing company, Make Believe Ideas Ltd., issued a recall of seven children’s books due to reports that the plastic ring bindings had detached, making them a choking hazard. There have been three reports of detaching rings, but no reported injuries.
Four of the seven books are included in the Rainbow Road Book Box sold at Costco: Things that Go!, Dinosaur’s First Words, Unicorn’s Colors, and Animal Counting. Customers who purchased this item between October 2022 and August 2023 can return it to Costco for a full refund or register at recallrtr.com/rr. The books have also been sold by Amazon, Target, and Barnes & Noble.
The second notice went out on September 28 to members who had purchased Orgain Organic Protein & Superfoods Powder in the Creamy Chocolate Fudge with Probiotics variety. This is a voluntary recall due to undeclared sesame, an allergen requiring disclosure. Anyone with a sesame allergen who purchased this protein powder with the lot numbers 3212 EL 14, 3213 EL 14, 3214 EL 14, and 3228 EL 14 can “return any unused product” to Costco for a full refund, according to the notice.
