Costco apologizes for California bible flap
SIMI VALLEY, Calif.- A Costco store in Southern California drew some unwanted attention this week after labeling some of its Bibles as fiction.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Discovery Church pastor Caleb Kaltenbach recently came across the Bibles with "Fiction" written on the price tag while shopping for a gift at a Costco store in Simi Valley.
He took a photo and posted it on social media with the comment: "Costco has Bibles for sale under the genre of FICTION Hmmmm..."
Costco has since apologized, saying in a statement a distributor mislabeled a small percentage of Bibles before they were sent to the store.
The company said it is correcting the mistake for future distribution.
