Costco is no longer selling Polish hot dogs at all of its in-store food stands — and it's fair to say some customers are not taking the news well.

But Canadians need not panic, as the menu update doesn't apply to stores north of the border.

The Seattle Times recently reported that a menu revamp, introduced to make the food stand's offerings slightly healthier, meant several stores would no longer offer Polish hot dogs.

The move, according to the newspaper, meant that stores were leaning toward selling alternative items, such as organic cheeseburgers, salads and fruits.

The standard all-beef hot dog is still for sale.

But many U.S. customers specifically wanted the Polish hot dogs, and even started a hashtag called #SaveThePolishDog.

Hundreds also signed a petition on Change.org, titled, "Keep the Polish Dog on the Costco Menu."

As news spread north of the border, Canadians were just as panicked as their fellow American Costco fiends.

Several tweeted at Costco Canada demanding answers.

And they were likely relieved to know that Canadian stores aren't planning to ditch the Polish hot dog.

Costco Canada replied to the tweets, ending Canadian Costco customers' misery.

"Please note that Costco Canada is not removing or replacing any of their hotdogs," one response read.

"We will continue to offer both all beef hotdog and all beef polish. Have a nice day!"

Costco Canada added in an email to Global News that it is not making any changes to the menu.
