Costco apologizes for labeling Bibles as fiction

A California pastor was none too pleased when he was shopping at Costco and noticed that The Bible was marked with a price tag labeled "FICTION."

Discovery Church pastor Caleb Kaltenbach tweeted the picture, which spread across social media platforms because it's 2013.



For its part, Costco released a statement to Fox News, saying a distributor had mislabeled a "small percentage" of Bibles before sending them to the store.

"However, we take responsibility and should have caught the mistake. We are correcting this with them for future distribution," Costco said. All mislabeled Bibles were also immediately relabeled.

"We greatly apologize for the error," the store said in its statement. [Los Angeles Times]
