Chobani recently posted this comment: “Here at Chobani, nothing is more important to us than the quality of our products and the safety and satisfaction of our customers.

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.”
