    They have had costco here for years but I imagine it has been spreading and expanding ever that time.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Not only do they have Costcos in Canada, but (at least some) Costcos in Canada sell poutine in the food court. OK, not primal, but still...I had never seen a Costco with a deep fat fryer running until I visited Calgary. They also have a hot pepper relish in the food court that the US costcos seriously should start providing too.

    Is that Costco brand butter, or another? I see nothing labeled grass-fed in our Costco. We do buy meats there, rather than the regular grocery, because Costco has a decent selection of organic meats.

    It's Kerrygold at ours. It's by the fancy cheese section, not with the "regular" buter.

    Gah! We have Kerrygold cheddar, but no butter. I am visiting family in Naperville, IL and there's Kerrygold butter in the regular grocery stores here. I have to go to Whole Foods or Trader Joe's.

    I didn't see any grass fed meats but did find organic beef and chicken. The coconut oil was $15.99 for 54 oz which was a good deal.

    i renewed my membership based on this.

I usually transfer mine to an old spaghetti jar that I've run through the diswasher, so that could be an option if you really wanted to play it safe.
    How do you know that they weren't in sweltering heat before being shipped to the Costco you bought it from? I know it's highly paranoid of me to ask, but just wondering.

    No way to tell really. The distribution company is Carringting Farms out of NJ. It says Organic/cold pressed/ from the Phillipines. Probably comes from the same lot as all the other companies out of the Phillipines.
