The rich flavor and ultra-creamy texture of Irish butter are highly praised. These wonderful qualities are provided by grass-fed cows.
Grass-fed butter has been shown to improve immunological, blood sugar, heart, and bone health.
Kerrygold is the most popular Irish butter in the United States, thanks to its gorgeous silver and gold packaging. Dave Asprey's butter coffee frenzy in 2009 helped popularize the brand.
If Kerrygold Irish butter disappears from your supermarket, blame the difficult-to-miss packaging.
Kerrygold butter has been pulled from Costco stores in California and New York because its foil packaging may violate new state laws against PFASs in food packaging.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, these "forever chemicals" might be harmful to people. They were recently prohibited in both states. Several states are enacting similar legislation this year.
According to a representative, Kerrygold "made the responsible decision to rethink some of our packaging" in response to the new requirements, and the butter will soon return to stores in PFAS-free packaging.
Kerrygold temporarily halted U.S. shipments last month "to ensure that no impacted product was on shelves by the time the new state regulations in New York and California went into effect.
According to a Costco manager in San Francisco, the beloved butter won't be back for another month or two.
