FIZZY IS NOT FINE IN YOGURT
The mold caused the packaging to swell and some customers had said that it tasted fizzy or had an alcohol overtone. The company started pulling the products from the self last week. The potentially affected products were distributed from their Twin Falls, Idaho facility.
In short, it’s best not to eat yogurt or any other product if the packaging is torn, punctured, or swelling. You just never know what contaminants natural or otherwise may lurk inside.
