The nation’s top selling yogurt company is recalling certain yogurt products due to swelling and “hissing” of the product cups and some reported illnesses from eating the product.
Officials at the Chobani plant in Twin Falls, Idaho, say a type of mold typically found in dairy production may be to blame. Before the recall, the company started removing some of the product from store shelves.
Complaints from customers started showing up on Chobani’s Facebook page. Company officials wrote on the page that the type of mold they suspect is “unlikely to have ill health effects” but they’ve decided to have a voluntary recall because of those claims of illness.
The recall includes all flavors Chobani Greek yogurt in various sizes with the product code 16-012 and “best-buy” dates of September 11, 2013 to October 7, 2013.
