California Costco apologizes after some bibles labeled fiction

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Costco store in California has drawn some unwanted attention after labeling some of its Bibles as fiction.

Discovery Church pastor Caleb Kaltenbach says he recently came across the Bibles with "Fiction" written on the price tag while shopping for a gift at a Costco store in Simi Valley.

He took a photo and posted it on social media with the comment: "Costco has Bibles for sale under the genre of FICTION Hmmmm..."

Costco has since apologized, saying in a statement that a distributor mislabeled a small percentage of Bibles before they were sent to the store. The company said it is correcting the mistake for future distribution.

Kaltenbach says he believes Costco, but notes that everyone must decide whether they believe the Bible is truth or fiction.
