Chobani Inc. has ceased the distribution of Greek Yogurt due to reports of product bloating and swelling and some claims of illness.

U.S. yogurt-maker Chobani on Thursday announced it is recalling certain cups of its Greek yogurt because they may be contaminated with mold. The recall comes nearly a week after consumer complaints of illness ignited a market withdrawal.

The Twin Falls, Idaho facility has ceased the distribution of the product due to reports of product bloating and swelling and some claims of illness as the company continues its investigation to identify the root cause.

The potentially affected product was distributed nationwide and was delivered to consumers through retail and club stores.

Chobani products marked with the code 16-012 and best-buy dates of Sept. 11, 2013 to Oct. 7, 2013 are affected by the voluntary recall. The Federal Food and Drug Administration is working with the company to remove products from national retail sale.

The recall includes all flavors Chobani of 3.5-ounce and 6-ounce cups and 16-ounce and 32-ounce tubs. It also includes all flavors of Chobani Bite and Chobani Champions 3.5-ounce cups, all flavors of Chobani Flip 5.3-ounce containers and all flavors of Chobani Champions 2.25-ounce tubes in eight, 16 and 36 count packages.
