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

The move comes about a week after the company first started asking retailers to pull the products from shelves. Chobani had previously said it wasn't issuing a formal recall.

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

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

The containers being recalled are marked with the code 16-012 and expiration dates Sept. 11 to Oct. 7.

The company's CEO, Hamid Ulukaya, says the problem was caused by a type of mold that is commonly found in dairy environments. He says the issue has been "totally fixed."
