Yogurt Recall Issued Amid Mold Concerns
If you have any Greek yogurt in the fridge, read this before you or someone in your family eats it!
Chobani has issued a voluntary recall of yogurt after consumers complained on social media sites about yogurt that ‘tasted old’ and had bloated or puffy cups and lids.

@Chobani did you change your recipe? Last few yogurts have been fizzy and watery and a little off. Sell by date more than 3 weeks away.

The company faced additional consumer frustration and confusion when their website crashed at some point today.
The company believes the problems were caused by a common mold found in dairy.
It is not believed to be harmful to eat, but the company wrote on their Facebook pagethat they are, ‘currently in the process of voluntarily removing and replacing some products from store shelves that did not meet our rigid quality standards.’
The pulled containers have the code 16-012 and expiration dates ranging from September 11th to October 20th, 2013.
If you have any of the affected products, you can e-mail Chobani’s customer service team at email@example.com for replacements.
