Target and Walmart Yogurt Recall; Coliform Contamination

Organic yogurt maker Stonyfield recalled 188 6-packs of 4 oz YoBaby Peach/Pear cups with the code date June 05 2014 (UPC 052159701161). The 4 oz 6-packs were shipped to Target stores in Alabama, Virginia, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina and Walmart stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Delaware.


The recall comes in response to internal testing of the product that revealed the possibility that some product shipped from Stoneyfield’s Londonderry plant may be affected by coliform contamination. Stonyfield advised its distribution network to immediately remove these specific code-dated yogurts from retail shelves. No other Stonyfield products were affected.


Consumers who purchased the potentially affected YoBaby yogurts from Walmart or Target with this code date are asked to return opened and unopened containers to their retailers to be reimbursed for the full value of the purchase. Affected yogurts were only available for purchase on or after April 23, 2014.
