That websiteSounds minuscule, right? Sure. But still, fans of Chobani's Facebook page are complaining of ailments stemming from the bad batch. One user says her 15-month-old daughter has been consuming Chobani Champion tubes that had that code, and now she has a horrible rash and a few other problems. Another fan revealed she's had stomach pains for three weeks as well as cramps, nausea, and bloating.
I understand that Chobani is doing the best they can to avoid mass hysteria over the quasi-recalled products. However, I think it's the consumer's right to have a little more information about what could happen after ingesting the tainted products and exactly which products were tainted. Customers who have purchased yogurts with the affected codes are encouraged to contact Chobani's customer service team at email@example.com to get replacement products.
A rash from eating that? Please. Stomach pains for three weeks? Oh brother.
I love how consumers take to Facebook to bitch about something. It's amazing. What most people don't realize too is that by stopping by the dairy department first and then trudging around the store they could have tainted the product because it came up to room temperature. Plus, it could also be due to inadequate cooling of the dairy cases that could have accelerated the process of whatever went wrong inside the container and possibly exasperate the issue.
That's why I tell shoppers (mainly from working in grocery retail forever): if it's dairy or frozen, never grab from the first two slots.
Always select from further back because you never know if that particular product was sitting in someones basket for two hours, up at the front end, etc.
