Chenango Chobani Plant Not Linked To Mold Problem

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Mold is being blamed for a problem that’s triggered customer complaints to Chenango County-based Chobani Incorporated.

Chobani in recent days directed some of its Greek-style yogurt pulled from store shelves after a flurry of reports of bulging containers. Some consumers said the yogurt they bought had a foul taste and some said they or their children became ill after eating the stuff.

The bad yogurt was produced at Chobani’s Twin Falls, Idaho, plant. No problems have been reported in connection with yogurt manufactured at the company’s original facility in South Edmeston.

Chobani says its investigation determined the issue is related to a type of mold. The company’s statement indicated only a small portion of the yogurt made at the Idaho facility was involved.

The affected containers have the code 16-012 with expiration dates between 9/11/2013 and 10/7/2013.

The Food and Drug Administration is reviewing the Chobani yogurt problem. Although some yogurt was pulled from stores shelves, the company has not issued a formal recall.
