Popular Greek Yogurt Recalled
Chobani, a popular brand of Greek yogurt, is recalling some of its products following reports of mold in containers and illnesses in customers.
The company said it had identified the mold, commonly found in dairy, in less than 5 percent of its products.
Affected products have a code of “16-012,” and expiration dates between 9/11/2013 and 10/7/2013. No other products are included in the recall at this time.
The mold was found in a limited amount of product that came from the company’s Idaho facility, located in Twin Falls. The Idaho facility only accounts for one-third of the company’s total production.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says certain molds on foods can cause allergic and respiratory infections, while other molds can produce “mycotoxins,” which are poisonous substances that make people feel sick.
People are asked to throw these affected products out and contact Chobani at 877-847-6181 for a replacement.
