On Thursday in a quarterly earnings call, Costco chief financial officer Richard Galanti announced that Costco will return to offering free food samples in June.

Galanti stated that there will be some changes saying,

"We're going to start doing some things in mid-June on a slow rollout basis in sampling. I can't tell you any more, but it's not going to be where you go and just pick up an open sample with your fingers."

The decision follows a recent announcement by Costco that the company is lifting some of its COVID-19 restrictions. Costco members are still required to wear a mask or face covering before being allowed to enter the store.
