[News] Triple Check Your Greek Yogurt — Chobani Recalls All Greek Yogurt Over Mold Concerns
Triple check your Greek yogurt.
Chobani has voluntarily recalled the majority of its Greek yogurt products over mold and reported package swelling, which led to a slew of customer illness claims. The recall covers all yogurt with the code 16-012 and a “best by” date in between 9/11 — 10/7, including:
- 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 BiteTM 3.5 oz. cups – all flavors
- Chobani FlipTM 5.3 oz. containers – all flavors
- Chobani Champions® cups 3.5 oz. – all flavors
- Chobani Champions® tubes 2.25 oz., 8, 16 and 36 count – all flavors
Chobani later conducted extensive testing and identified the mold as Mucor circinelloides; a strain that food experts say isn’t dangerous and “should not pose a health risk to most consumers.”
Still, if you’ve got a fridge stocked with contaminated Greek yogurt, be extra cautious and chuck it — Chobani apologized and is making good on its hiccup through the following process:
“Consumers who have purchased [Greek yogurt] should discard [it] and may contact [our] Customer Loyalty Team at chobani.com/care or call 877-847-6181 between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm ET. Our team is diligently working to coordinate replacements or refunds and will be in touch as soon as possible during this time of very high contact volumes.”
“The quality of Chobani products and the trust of its consumers are the company’s primary concern, and it sincerely apologizes to its consumers impacted by this issue. Chobani holds itself to the highest standards and is committed to fully transparent and decisive action to rectify any identified issues.
