Chobani Recalls Moldy Greek Yogurt; CEO Apologizes

Chobani, the biggest Greek yogurt maker in the U.S., has recalled some yogurt cups that contained mold after an unspecified number of people reported feeling ill, the company said Thursday.

According to the company, a small batch of yogurt from an Idaho facility — less than 5% of its production — was found to contain mold.

The recall, announced Thursday, began as a “voluntary withdrawal” Saturday after consumers had complained on social media about the unusual consistency and taste of the yogurt.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said this week it was investigating Chobani’s handling of the problem and was working with the Greek yogurt maker to facilitate the removal of the affected products.
