Chobani issued a product withdrawal for some of its Greek yogurt on Friday.
The withdrawal isn’t a formal recall, but it does comes after complaints about ”swelling or bloating” yogurt cups. Chobani says that the affected cups had a type of mold in them commonly found in dairy products. The Greek yogurt affected by this mold came from the company’s Idaho factory and accounts for less than 5% of the company’s Greek yogurt. Chobani has been working to remove the moldy yogurt from supermarkets, including Kroger (KR) . Yogurt cups with the code 16-012 and expiration dates ranging from Sept. 11 to Oct. 7 are being pulled from shelves, reports the Associated Press.
Chobani is offering customers who purchased Greek yogurt that was affected by the mold coupons. These coupons are meant to help customers purchase fresh cups of Greek yogurt to replace their moldy ones.
