Yesterday Chobani, Inc. announced a voluntary recall of its line of Greek yogurt produced at its Twin Falls, Idaho facility. The tainted yogurt, which reportedly contains mold, was distributed nationwide to retail and club stores, according to the FDA. The facility accounts for one-third of Chobani’s products, according to the company, and the affected products may make up to 5% of their worldwide production.
The recall came after customers complained that the yogurt tasted foul and had an odd consistency: many of the recalled yogurt cups were swollen and bloated. In addition, some consumers complained of illness, including gastrointestinal distress.
The FDA urges consumers to discard Chobani products with best buy dates between September 11 and October 7, 2013, with the IMS number 16-012 printed on the label. Chobani provides the above infographic on its website to help consumers locate this information. The affected products include:
- Chobani 6 oz. cups – all flavors
- Chobani 16 oz. tubs – all flavors
- Chobani 32 oz. tubs – all flavors
- Chobani 3.5 oz. cups – all flavors
- Chobani Bite™ 3.5 oz. cups – all flavors
