Chobani is now recalling some of its greek yogurt after hearing reports of swelling in cups and some claims of illnesses.

Company officials said after an investigation a type of mold commonly found in dairy may be to blame for the yogurt popping and appearing runny and bubbly.

The affected yogurt came from Chobani's Idaho facility and represents less than five percent of its total production.

There have been claims of people getting sick after eating the yogurt.

The company is voluntarily working with grocery stores to remove and replace the yogurt.

Chobani's CEO said the company has fixed the problem that led it to issue a recall.

The affected yogurt contains the code 16-012 and includes expiration dates between September 11 and October 7.

Customers should contact Chobani's customer service team at care@chobani.com to get replacement products.
