BCfresh and our grower partners can confirm that onions packaged as Bestfresh Chefs Reserve 10lb Onions are not included in the recall as they are NOT SOURCED from Thomson International (Bakersfield, California).

Our Bestfresh 10lb Onion packaging is a black mesh bag with gold label with UPC 7-75058-50108-2 – they are Washington onions sourced from completely different grower/packer and are safe to consume. 

If you have lingering concerns regarding the safety of Bestfresh Chef’s Reserve 10lb onions, we recommend you dispose of the product or return to Costco for a full refund.
