NEW YORK (AP) — Costco will stop selling diapers for newborns in the United States and will also limit their sale to $50 in the coming weeks.
The national grocery giant is the first U.S. grocery chain to say newborn diapers should be sold at $50.
The diapers, which are usually sold in diapers boxes and can cost up to $40, are already sold at Wal-Mart, Target, Costco and other big retailers.
Costco, the largest U.K. supermarket, is also among the biggest retailers to drop diapers for babies, which can cause allergies and other problems.
The decision by Costco comes as baby wipes and other baby products have been on sale in some U.N. cities and as the World Health Organization recommends infant formula should be used to feed babies.
The WHO said infant formula contains 70 percent less calories than formula sold by supermarkets.
A Costco spokeswoman said the company is committed to protecting the health of newborns and to protecting our environment.
The company has not provided any information about the price of diapers, but it has said it is the lowest price in the industry.
In addition, the company has started selling diapers with the company’s new Baby Grocer app.
It will allow shoppers to buy and use baby diapers at stores across the country, including at Costco stores, in addition to in stores and online.
Costos diapers are sold by the brand’s retail stores and are available for use at Walmart, Target and Costco stores.
