Chobani Greek Yogurt Recall
Even though Chobani Greek Yogurt has been recalled over mold issues, the company still plans to deliver their product to schools this month. The product will only be delivered in schools in New York, Idaho, Arizona and Tennessee. However, a problem such as this can happen in California schools as well.
According to the manufacturer, the product is being produced in a different facility than the tainted yogurt - parents should not be worried. The U. S. Department of Agriculture wants to test the use of Greek-style yogurt as a healthy, high-protein addition to the National School Lunch Program.
The tainted product was produced in Twin Falls, Idaho where company officials detected mold after receiving consumer reports of bubbling, bulging cartons of yogurt. It is now being produced in the company's New York plant.
More than 200 complaints of illness were reported to the Food and Drug Administration to date. The USDA will ensure that the product delivered to schools is healthy and safe.
If your child gets sick on something he or she ate in the school cafeteria, take them to your doctor immediately. Consumers expect food purchased in a school to be safe. Manufacturers are required to meet industry standards.
Your next step should be to contact an attorney who has been successful in product liability cases. Call the personal injury law offices of Peach & Weathers to discuss your legal options.
