It Only Takes Some Mold to Create a Problem

Sep 11, 2013

Chobani Yogurt Twin Falls, Idaho plant is the largest yogurt facility in the world. It produces about 1 million cases of yogurt per week and processes about 2-2.5 million pounds of milk per day.

I took a trip to Southern Idaho last winter and drove by the plant. It was almost ready to open and I can tell you it is a very large building.

Recently, it was discovered that some of the yogurt coming out of this plant contained mold that made some people sick. Here is the message from the founder of Chobani discussing the pro-active steps they have taken to recall this product. This company was started only in 2005 and in less than 10 years they have probably become the largest US producer of Greek Yogurt. They promote a very natural real yogurt product and perhaps using these steps may have caused the issue with the mold.

I have no complaints with the company or the steps they have taken, but when we deal with food products, it only takes a small amount of mold to cause a very large problem with a company or industry. This is just another example of one in the news lately.
