We told you how on September 5, Chobani Greek yogurt was recalled due to the mold, Mucor Circinelloides. Containers with the code 16-012 and best-by dates of Sept. 11 to Oct. 7 were part of the recall, however the FDA continues to get complaints from customers who have gotten ill from the yogurt.
As of September 13, the FDA received a total of 170 complaints associated with Chobani. The various issues reported continue to be cramps, nausea, headache and diarrhea. The complaints were submitted by individuals in Arizona, Delaware, New York, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, California, Indiana and Florida.
Tamara Ward, a spokeswoman for the agency says, “These reports about a product only reflect information as reported and do not represent any conclusion by the FDA about whether the product actually caused the adverse events."
Last week Cornell University Professor Randy Worobo said on a conference call arranged by Chobani that the mold “should not pose a health risk to most consumers.”
And many areas are reporting that the recalled containers of yogurt are still showing up on store shelves. Make sure you check the dates if you choose to purchase any Chobani yogurt.
