Costco Kirkland Brand
« on: September 24, 2012, 01:39:22 PM »
Has anyone had any experience with the Kirkland (Costco) brand products?

I just spoke with a Costco CSR, but I didn't come away with many "reliable" details as to their allergen policy?

Any help would be great!

I've always had good experience with Costco and Sam's Club with allergen info but the satisfaction might fall along philosophical lines. I'm not reliant upon corporate labeling policies so much as when I call or email I want an answer specific to exact question I ask like they actually looked into shared line info for me.

We also use Kirkland products.  BUT-- I also call on anything that seems too good to be true, like dried fruit, crackers, or baked goods/sweets.

Does that make sense?

I have known other people to be burned by Kirkland's labeling and make assumptions because one product was well labeled that others were as well.

It is why I am sketchy on so many store brands.  They are generally only sharing info that companies share with them.  So while one package of cookies may say "May contain nuts" and another doesn't, that doesn't mean that the other is necessarily safe.

Having said that, I will buy storebrand items without calling if they are lower on the allergy risk for the kids (and depending on which child, that list will differ greatly).

I use Kirkland's but pretty much just for items that have a single ingredient or few ingredients (such as milk, hamburger patties, turkey burger patties, meat).

Has anyone checked into Kirkland's Pulled Pork?  A friend told DH that it was really good, DH tried it while out of town and agreed.
