Concerns about mold prompt nationwide recall of yogurt

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The parent company of Lavva brand yogurt has initiated a recall of a lot of product because testing showed possible mold contamination. The yogurt is available at retailers nationwide, including Whole Foods Market, Sprouts, Kroger and local natural food stores.

Although the single lot of implicated blueberry yogurt “cleared strict quality assurance protocols, recent testing indicates a potential mold contamination,” according to a company recall notice from EVR Foods Inc., which was posted by the Food and Drug Administration.

The lot of recalled yogurt has an expiration date of Feb. 21, so there is concern that consumers may have unused servings of the product in their homes. The 5.3-ounce containers of blueberry plant-based Lavva brand yogurt were produced at a manufacturing facility in Norwich, NY, and has only been linked to the single date code, the company reported in the recall notice.

As of the posting of the notice, no confirmed illnesses had been reported.

The yogurt containers are plastic cups with foil lids. The bottom of the cups are marked with “lot #022121.” The lot number is also the expiration date, according to the company’s statement.

“Consumers are urged not to eat the product subject to the recall. Anyone who purchased the SKU may return it to the place of purchase for a full refund,” according to the recall notice.

Consumers with questions about the recall can contact the company at [email protected] or 833-885-2882. 

The FDA is assisting with the process of investigating the source of the problem.
