Got 4 tubs from a costco in northern va. they still have plenty left.
if anyone is hesitant because of the fda failed inspection allegations, i've looked into the issue and found that the company producing this batch of powders is totally different from the one that was busted by fda 2 years ago (busted one was in NJ, this new company is in PA). also, thumbs up for the all natural sweeteners in this one. i haven't tried it yet so don't know how the taste would compare to ON 100% whey.

Thanks for the into
Thank you for the info! I had bought this product at the Costco in Nashua and was trying to find more. After reading the info at that link, I am NOT using this anymore. Thanks so much! I appreciate it.

And for those on the WPC vs WPI debate, I posted this for the BIG savings it is over all the whey proteins combined. Sure hydrolyzed would be great or ON for that matter. Find me that for $3.30/lb. That's the point of this board.

Not to get into any hardcore debate, but for anyone that spends a lot more for WPI over WPC thinking they are getting a better product, I wouldn't waste your money. You do get 90% protein instead of 80% and there's a higher BV value, but the cost difference rarely can make up for that and ultimately you can just take a little more (like 2g more per serving) WPC to offset that. For a protein intended for instantaneous digestion like WPI is often marketed, you should instead spend your money on a free form amino acid complex. Instead of buying protein, where amino acids are bonded to each other, you are getting aminos that are not bonded, therefore an extremely high BV value and extremely fast digestion. You want that fast digestion for pre workout and post workout. For those of you that take a scoop of whey before you workout but then feel bloated, full, or sick to your stomach while you workout, the free form aminos will fix this.
I'm only talking to the people that are serious about their supplements by the way. If you are just looking for a little extra protein in your diet, let price make your decision. Otherwise, your best bet is Hydrolyzed Whey (87% protein, just under WPI and the same price as WPC), and free form aminos.
I currently get the aminos on ebay of all places. Ajinomoto is the best brand by a long shot.

I was looking around for some reviews of this brand and found this:
Could it be possible that this is the reason why Costco is taking the brand off their shelves?
