Chobani Yanks Yogurt Over Mold Concerns

chobani[1]Chobani issued a product withdrawal[2] 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[3]) . 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[4]. These coupons are meant to help customers purchase fresh cups of Greek yogurt to replace their moldy ones.
