(WXYZ) — Costco has set a meat-purchase limit for consumers during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, joining such food retailers as The Kroger Co. and Alberstons.

For the time being, Costco will limit beef, pork and poultry purchases to a total of three items per member.

“Our buyers and suppliers are working hard to provide essential, high demand merchandise as well as everyday favorites."
