Chobani Yogurt Finds Cause Of Bloated Cups
Chobani Greek yogurt has found the cause of bloating in some of its containers.
Responding to complaints that its products were more like "yogurt soup" instead of thick with a "wine" taste, the company blamed a mold found in dairy product. "Our thorough investigation has identified a type of mold commonly found in the dairy environment. The product in question is less than 5% of our production and is limited to cups produced at our Idaho facility, which accounts for only one third of our production capacity," read a post to the company's website.
The company has been working with retailers to remove and replace containers with the code 16-012 and expiration dates Sept. 11 to Oct. 7.
Chobani, which is based in New Berlin, N.Y., did not say how many of its cups or what varieties were affected. The effort was voluntary and it is not issuing a formal recall.
