Transcript for Yogurt Recall: What You Need to Know
Now, to the recall that could affect what you're eating for breakfast right now. Chobani is pulling some of its yogurts from shelves after they had mold. For a reality check on this, let's bring in dr. Richard besser. Always good to have you here. Rich, this is a voluntary recall. That's right. Some customers were complaining of a fizzy feeling in their mouth and a bad taste. The company tested the yogurt. And they found this mold. And mold is a frequent cause of spoilage in yogurt. Are there serious health concerns here? You hear the word recall and you have to worry. Most time recalls are for bacteria that cause illness. But mold is a little bit different. We use mold to make blue cheese and medicines. But mold can cause spoilage. It's not dangerous. But you don't want to eat it. You know people that are reaching for it right now. What do you say to them? Go to the chobani website and see if your yogurt has been recalled. Trust yourself. If it smells bad, tastes bad, looks bad, you throw it away. If the container is bulging, you want to throw it away. That means there's mold. That was the case here. We saw some of the video. You can see it was bubbling over there in the store. That's right. The consumers listened to themselves and they contacted the company. That's what you want to see. All right. Have a great weekend, rich. You, too.
