(AP) Chobani says it's issuing a recall of some of its Greek yogurt cups that were affected by mold. The recall comes after some customers reported claims of illnesses.


The move comes about a week after the company first started asking retailers to pull the products from shelves, saying some cups were "swelling and bloating." Chobani had previously said it wasn't issuing a formal recall.


But the Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that it was in talks with the company about the matter.


Chobani said that most of the affected products have already been pulled from shelves.


In an interview, Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya said that the problem was caused by a type of mold at its plant in Idaho that is commonly found in dairy environments. He said the issue has been "totally fixed."


Ulukaya did not say exactly how many reports of illnesses the company received. He said it was not in the hundreds or thousands, however.


This week, the company was responding online to customers who were complaining about their yogurt. One person said her yogurt was "unnervingly fizzy" and another said it tasted like "wine."
