TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Costco's across the country will look a little different this summer.

The warehouse retailer announced that their food court will no longer carry the popular Polish dog at a majority of its locations.

The reason? A push toward healthier food choices.

In addition to the Polish dog, the mixed berry sundae has been replaced with an açai fruit bowl, with organic burgers and plant-based protein salads making a place for themselves on the menu as well.

While Costco members have flooded the company's Facebook page with comments protesting the change, the retailer says they will still carry the regular hot dog and soda combo.

In an interview with the Seattle Times, Costco's co-founder Jim Sinegal said, "We're known for that hot dog. That's something you don't mess with."
