Seto wrote: “Beware: Costco shopping carts, Automation Parkway in San Jose.

“We were at the 99 Ranch Market across from this Costco and saw their vendors delivering meat with Costco shopping carts!!

“Talk about disgusting! I’m usually okay with sticking the kids in the seat of the basket, but this is a whole new level of gross. Beware.”

The Clara County Department of Environmental Health is now investigating the incident.

The meat vendor, Jim’s Farm Meat Company, said that both employees in the photos have been fired and he is investigating the incident.
