Chobani says mold in yogurt does not carry disease
First Published Sep 06 2013 12:15 pm • Last Updated Sep 06 2013 12:39 pm

Yogurt maker Chobani says the mold that triggered a recall of some of its Greek yogurt cups this week in Utah and other parts of the country is not associated with foodborne illnesses like salmonella or E. coli.

The company identified the mold Friday as a common species that usually affects fruits, vegetables and other plants. It has also been linked to previous cases of spoiled yogurt.

Cornell University Professor Randy Worobo says the mold "should not pose a health risk to most consumers." Worobo is a professor of food science.

A company spokeswoman said 95 percent of the affected products have already been pulled from shelves. The company, based in New Berlin, N.Y., said the affected products came from its Idaho facility and represents less than 5 percent of its total production.
