Costco apologizes for California bible flap

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) – 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 (
http://lat.ms/18nVqRy) Wednesday that Caleb Kaltenbach, pastor of Discovery Church, 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 they are correcting the mistake for future distribution.
