I love Stonyfield and am saddened that this has happened to a really good company.
Stonyfield Farm is recalling about 44,000 quarts of fat-free plain organic yogurt in Stonyfield Farm branded containers because the yogurt products might contain sanitizer that's normally used in food plants. The company said it hasn't received any reports of illnesses, but it has received several reports from people noticing an off-taste or off-smell. Stonyfield Farm said the issue resulted from human error in not following the company's standard operating procedures.But, again, why is this recall hitting the wires late Friday night?
The recalled products are limited to Stonyfield Farm 32-ounce Fat Free Plain yogurt with the UPC code 52159 00006. It carries one of these product codes printed along the cup bottom that start with the following date codes:
-- May 06 09: Time stamped 22:17 through 23:59 (limited to these specific time stamps only).
-- May 07 09: All time stamps.For more information, consumers can call 800-776-2697. - AP
