The FDA Is Recalling This Yogurt Due to Mold Concerns

This yogurt was sold at Whole Foods, Kroger, and other grocery stores all across the country.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced a new recall of Lavva Blueberry Dairy Free Pili Nut Yogurt because of possible mold contamination.

The recall covers 5. 3-ounce blue containers that also have green leaves, an aluminum foil lid, and an expiration date of 2/21/21. They were distributed to grocery retailers nationwide like Whole Foods, Sprouts, Kroger, and more. The possibility of mold was discovered during testing, even after the yogurt passed through quality assurance protocols without any issues, the FDA announcement says.

"This plant-based yogurt was produced at a manufacturing facility in Norwich, NY, and has only been linked to the single date code," the company says. "There have been no confirmed illnesses."

None of the other pili nut, no sugar added flavors are involved in this yogurt recall. The lot number for the blueberry is #022121. Any customer with a cup in their fridge can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. They also can email [email protected] or call 833-885-2882 for more information.

Eating moldy food can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and other common food poisoning symptoms. It can also cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems. And the mold doesn't just live on the surface of food—it has roots deep within and can even be found around and throughout the food, according to the USDA.
