In a product advisory posted to their website, Costco said anyone who purchased the Irish Rover 2021 Advent Calendar for Dogs (item 2462182) at a Costco warehouse or on between Oct. 1 and Dec. 8 should stop feeding their pets the treats immediately “out of an abundance of caution.”

Costco said Irish Dog Foods is reviewing quality concerns and the product does not meet Costco’s quality standards.

Those who purchased the calendar can return it to a Costco warehouse for a full refund.
