According to FDA, Chobani Yogurt May Have Sickened 89

Chobani-yogurtThe Food and Drug Administration has said that at least 89 people got sick after reportedly eating recalled Chobani yogurt products. The yogurt was apparently contaminated with┬áMucor circinelloides, a type of mold that causes spoilage in dairy products. The mold isn’t a disease-causing organism, but it can sicken those with compromised immune systems.

The illnesses have not been definitively linked to the yogurt. The recall was first initiated because the containers were bloating and swelling, and the yogurt was thinner than usual and was fizzing and making a hissing sound. Some consumers reported a bad taste as well, and some yogurt containers exploded in the refrigerator.

The illnesses reported nausea and cramps, according to Tamara Ward, who spoke to a reporter at the Times-News on Monday. The recalled yogurts, which include cups and tubes, have the code 16-012 and expiration dates between September 11, 2013 and October 7, 2013.

      That expiration date is not in the recalled range, so the yogurt you bought has not been recalled.
