Consumers in Canada rushed to return croissants to Costco after the company announced that the delicacy might contain plastic.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency said that consumers who purchased the Kirkland brand croissants should throw them out or return them for a full refund as they could contain plastic.

Costco Wholesale Canada Ltd. also announced that is recalling Kirkland Signature brand All Butter Croissants from certain stores in the marketplace due to the possible presence of plastic.

Consumers should not consume the recalled products as they could choke on plastic.

The Kirkland Signature brand All Butter Croissants 12-packs were sold only at the following locations in Ontario: Costco Barrie, Costco London South, Costco London North, Costco Newmarket, and Costco Etobicoke.

The Kirkland Signature brand All Butter Croissants Frozen Uncooked were also recalled.

The affected product was sold at Costco Newmarket and Costco Etobicoke.

There have been no reported injuries associated with the consumption of this product to date.

All croissants that have a best used by date before January 7 should not be consumed while all frozen croissants with a sell by date before Apr 2 should be discarded.
