I didn't know that they were gone... my food co-op seems have been stocking them regularly. But for those of you who have been deprived, I'm glad they are back for your eating pleasure.

Sadly, my love for macadamia nuts involves a cookie and white chocolate.

Thanks for posting this!! My Costco stopped carrying them sometime around the beginning of September. They promised me they'd have them back in November. Nope. I've been checking pretty much every week and have been constantly disappointed. I SO hope my Costco has them now, too!!

Interesting!
I did not know this.
Thanks for the warning.
Good info for dog owners!
Don't have dogs myself just a house cat and two house rabbits.
I keep rabbits away from all nuts and my cat is a meat only kind of a guy.

Well, I have been under lots of stress and I polished off the Whole container of Macs so I am glad they are back, but have to avoid them for now.
Sometimes I have control and sometimes I don't.

Well..... if you google dogs and macadamia nuts you will get a host of sites that will tell you about it.

I copied this from WEBMD which has a whole bunch of things they can't have.

Macadamia Nuts
Dogs should not eat macadamia nuts or foods containing macadamia nuts because they can be fatal. As few as six raw or roasted macadamia nuts can make a dog ill. Symptoms of poisoning include muscle tremors, weakness or paralysis of the hindquarters, vomiting, elevated body temperature, and rapid heart rate. Eating chocolate with the nuts will make symptoms worse, possibly leading to death.
Candy and Gum
Candy, gum, toothpaste, baked goods, and some diet foods are sweetened with xylitol. Xylitol can cause an increase in the insulin circulating through your dog's body. That can cause your dog's blood sugar to drop and can also cause liver failure. Initial symptoms include vomiting, lethargy, and loss of coordination. Eventually, the dog may have seizures. Liver failure can occur within just a few days.
Chocolate
Most people know that chocolate is bad for dogs. The toxic agent in chocolate is theobromine. It's in all kinds of chocolate, even white chocolate. The most dangerous kinds, though, are dark chocolate, chocolate mulch, and unsweetened baking chocolate. Eating chocolate, even just licking the icing bowl, can cause a dog to vomit, have diarrhea, and be excessively thirsty. It can also cause abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures, and death.

I experienced the problem of Macadamia nuts and dogs. Takes something as little as 10-12 to poison a small dog!
Since losing " My Boy" I've learnt dogs should not have nuts or Grapes. Nor onions or chocolate.
Would have been better if I'd known before.

I think it depends on the dogs too. My dogs eat everything we eat, including chocolate and nuts, and it doesn't affect them negatively, but they weigh over 100 pounds each, so I think maybe their bigger systems are able to handle it easier.

Dogs are dogs....... if is toxic to one it is toxic to all. We are not talking about an allergy here. Now, Yes, I am sure it would take a larger amount to have the same effect on a larger dog..,. but I personally am not willing to take the chance.

I just know that it's not toxic, or harmful to my dogs. As I said, they always eat whatever we eat, including chocolate and nuts, and they are 10 and 12, so it hasn't been harmful to them. I'm sure some dogs have a problem with it, but not all.

I would tend to agree...my 6 yo dog has gotten into chocolate that the kids left around more than once and she was completely fine. That dog has an iron stomach. And I won't even get into the stuff my puppy eats off the floor.

I am not saying this is healthy by any means, and I should and do try to prevent this from happening, but it certainly hasn't been harmful.

Hope you don't get expensive vet fees! The dog in question was referred to the vet poisons unit so it wasn't trivial.
Whilst it wasn't my dog that ate the macadamia nuts, he enjoyed grapes and died of renal problems and I have since heard grapes can cause renal problems!
He also enjoyed small samples of human food but knowing what I do now I would NEVER have risked his health.

Is it the Mauna Loa's in the blue canisters? For a while, our Costco had a different brand, that was not as good.
