Cinnaminson, NJ, January 15th
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that a plant-based yogurt was recalled due to a potential mold contamination. The company was recalling only one specific flavor of yogurt from just one lot that was manufactured in New York but distributed nationwide. The recall was initiated after recent testing indicated the potential contamination. Fortunately, there has been no confirmed illnesses to date.
“The potentially mold contaminated vegan and diary-free yogurt was distributed to retail stores nationwide, so it’s important for consumers to be aware of this FDA recall notice and to not eat the product subject to the recall,” said Joseph Frasca, Senior Vice President of Marketing at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “At EMSL, our food scientists offer comprehensive food testing services.
