MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Hundreds of Wisconsin grocery stores have removed Chobani Greek yogurt from their shelves, after a moldy production process in Idaho caused the product to go bad.
The company said this week that mold at its plant in Twin Falls caused yogurt to spoil before its expiration date -- and some customers say they've had containers explode as a result.
The cause of the mold has not been determined. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has the complete list of affected products on its Web site.
Dozens of Wisconsinites have complained to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about bloated and exploding Chobani containers.
Brookfield school student Natalie Neals said her Strawberry Flip yogurt blew up while it was in her lunch box Thursday. Emily Gellings of Franklin said she had several Chobani yogurt packs burst in her refrigerator.
