Coronavirus Causes Costco to Suspend Free Samples

Costco free samples have fed my kids lunch before, but the fun is over. As concern grows for the spread of COVID-19, Costco has stopped free food samples in all of their warehouses.

"Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, there are no food product samples," a Costco representative in Nashville, Tennessee, told NBC's Today.

Fox News reports that other grocers are changing their protocol including Trader Joe's now individually plating their samples. See the full story from FOX News here.

Social media mourned the loss today as one Twitter user Tweeted, "You can cancel flights, sell out of hand sanitizer, and cancel events, but suspending Costco Free Samples? You got my attention how do we stop this corona virus?"
