Chobani is pulling some of its Greek yogurt from supermarket shelves after hearing reports of "swelling" in cups.
Company officials say 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 no reports of illness.
The company is voluntarily working with grocery stores to remove and replace the yogurt.
The affected yogurt contains the code 16-012 and includes expiration dates between September 11 and October 7.
