Several respectable sources, such as the
Mayo Clinic, cite dairy’s ability to thicken
mucus, but not create it. These sources do indicate, however, that additional phlegm may be
caused by consumption of dairy products if
one has an allergy or sensitivity.—Ed.
Where’s the fish?
In your February 2011 issue you had a
wonderful article on Kirkland Signature frozen fish [“Net gain,” Buying Smart].
I went to the store to purchase your
mahi-mahi and cod as mentioned in the
article and loved it. I then went back to the
store to get more, only to find out they are
discontinued. I am very disappointed. Why
would you publish an article about products
that you plan on continuing to carry, only to
disappoint your customers?
Costco buyer Scott O’Brien responds: I
understand your disappointment. We did not
anticipate the shortage. Fishing this season
was very poor, due to inclement weather.
Colder water temperatures kept the fish too far
offshore and out of reach of the fishing vessels.
Hopefully, we will have the item back in by fall
or sooner when the season begins again.
