If your cup of Chobani Greek yogurt is suspiciously swollen, a mold commonly found in dairy may be to blame.

Chobani announced Tuesday that it is pulling some of its Greek yogurt from supermarket shelves after customers complained of “swelling or bloating” in cups.

Chobani said in message on its Facebook page that it has investigated the problem and found that a type of mold frequently found in dairy may be to blame.

The company, which is based in New Berlin, N.Y., said that the affected yogurt was made at its Idaho facility and accounts for only 5 percent of its total production.

It did not say how many of its cups or what varieties were affected.

On Tuesday the company was responding to customers about their yogurt cups on Twitter. One person said her was "unnervingly fizzy," another said the cups were like "yogurt soup" and another said it tasted like "wine."

“We've been diligently working with our retail partners and have voluntarily and proactively removed and replaced the majority of potentially affected cups with the code 16-012, expiration dates
9/11/2013 - 10/7/ 2013 to ensure our fans are met with only the best experience when enjoying our products,” Chobani said.

Customers with the affected code dates should contact Chobani customer service team at care@chobani.com to get replacement products, the company said.
