Bloomberg via Getty Images (NEW YORK) — Chobani has pulled containers of its popular Greek yogurt off store shelves.

The company has identifed the problem as a mold outbreak, it said Tuesday.

“The product in question is less than 5% of our production and is limited to cups produced at our Idaho facility, which accounts for only one third of our production capacity,” Chobani said in a statement.

Chobani said it has removed and replaced the vast majority of possibly affected cups.

The expiration dates on the affected yogurts range from Sept. 11 to Oct. 7, the company said.
