Chobani Issues Voluntary Recall of Yogurt from Idaho Plant
"Fizzy" and "swelling" yogurt has led Chobani to pull some of its products off the shelves. The defect is a result of a type of mold commonly found in dairy.
Chobani first heard of the incident after twitter users were complaining about purchasing yogurt that was "unnervingly fizzy" and tasted "really old" and like "wine." Another user said that their cups were like "yogurt soup."
Chobani has indicated that the defective yogurts, which represent less than 5 percent of its total production, have come from their Idaho facility. A voluntary recall is being made to remove containers with the code 16-012 and expiration dates Sept. 11 to Oct. 7 from the shelves of retailers and replace them with ones that meet Chobani's standards.
Customers who have purchased yogurt with the affected code dates can contact Chobani's customer service team at care(at)chobani.com in order to receive replacement products.
