Popular Yogurt Pulled from Shelves

 How do you like your Greek yogurt? Maybe with some fresh berries and a little granola? I know how you don't like it: "fizzing." I'm also sure you don't want it to taste "really old" or look as though it's "swelling or bloating" in the cup. Greek yogurt honcho Chobani is in the process of pulling some of its products from supermarket shelves after customers recently complained of all of those above issues. According to the company, a type of mold commonly found in dairy may be to blame.

Is it a complete Chobani recall? No, not quite. The effort is voluntary and preventive, and they are not issuing a formal recall.

Regardless, I know you don't wanna be eating bad yogurt, right? So -- here's everything you need to know about Chobani's yogurt fiasco:

Cups with the code 16-012 and expiration dates between September 11, 2013 and October 7, 2013 are affected. The company isn't revealing what states these items went to or which products are affected, only that the bad batch was made in its Idaho facility and represents less than 5 percent of its total population.

Sounds minuscule, right? Sure. But still, fans of Chobani's Facebook page are complaining of ailments stemming from the bad batch. One user says her 15-month-old daughter has been consuming Chobani Champion tubes that had that code, and now she has a horrible rash and a few other problems. Another fan revealed she's had stomach pains for three weeks as well as cramps, nausea, and bloating.

I understand that Chobani is doing the best they can to avoid mass hysteria over the quasi-recalled products. However, I think it's the consumer's right to have a little more information about what could happen after ingesting the tainted products and exactly which products were tainted. Customers who have purchased yogurts with the affected codes are encouraged to contact Chobani's customer service team at care@chobani.com to get replacement products.

Are you going to double-check your yogurts?

We talked to the store we go to about this and they were smart.  As soon as they saw the swelling back in stock chill room, none of the shipment went on shelves.   We do not eat greek yogurt typically.
