Chobani voluntarily recalling yogurt products

Posted: Updated:

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- Yogurt maker Chobani notified stores over the weekend to pull potentially spoiled product from its shelves, but a Costco representative said the company received reports from retailers about tainted product two or three weeks ago.
 
Craig Wilson is vice president of quality assurance for Costco Wholesale Corp. He told The Times-News that Costco pulled Chobani yogurt manufactured in Twin Falls from its shelves in the San Francisco Bay area and the Northwest region weeks ago and is only accepting yogurt from the company's East Coast plant.
 
On Tuesday, Chobani said a type of mold common in dairy products may be to blame for the bloated packaging and bad-tasting yogurt.
 
Chobani spokeswoman Amy Juaristi said the recalled products have the code 16-012 and expiration dates from Sept. 11 to Oct. 7.
