Stonyfield Farm Recalls Some Fat-free Yogurt on 'Fragment' Reports

04/01/2008
Londonderry, N.H.-based organic yogurt maker Stonyfield Farm said it was voluntarily recalling select Stonyfield Organic Fat Free Blueberry Yogurt, packaged in 6-ounce cups, after receiving consumer complaints reporting plastic or glass fragments in these particular batches. There have been no reports of injury, the company said.

The recall includes Stonyfield Organic Fat Free Blueberry Yogurt, packaged in 6-ounce cups, carrying product codes printed along the cup bottom that start with the following dates:
April 13 08
April 14 08
April 15 08
April 25 08
April 26 08

People who bite into or swallow a fragment could possibly be injured, prompting this precautionary recall, the yogurt maker said. The company said it believes the problem is not widespread.

Stonyfield Farm said it advised its distribution network to immediately remove these specific code-dates of 6-ounce fat free blueberry yogurt from retail shelves.

"Our first priority has always been and always will be the welfare of our consumers," said Gary Hirshberg, Stonyfield Farm president and c.e.o. "While we continue to investigate these complaints and believe that the risk of injury is extremely remote, we feel that this voluntary measure is the prudent and responsible step at this time."
