Crab dip sold at Costco recalled

A food company is recalling a crab dip and warning that it may cause diarrhea.

A Naples, Fla., company is recalling Gold Coast brand crab dip that is sold at Costco stores.

Costco sent letters to about 180,000 customers saying that the popular crab dip may have been contaminated with listeria — a bacteria that causes diarrhea.

Gold Coast Salads is well known for different types of seafood spreads selling in grocery stores across the East Coast.

A letter on the company’s website says Gold Coast is voluntarily recalling its blue crab spread with an expiration date of Jan. 31, 2013 because it could be contaminated with listeria.
