A Costco store in Southern California drew unwanted attention this week for labeling some of its Bibles as fiction.

Caleb Kaltenbach, pastor of Discovery Church, 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 a distributor mislabeled a small percentage of Bibles before they were sent to the store. The company said they are correcting the mistake for future distribution.
