Whole Foods Will Stop Selling Chobani Yogurt Next Year

Whole Foods is going to stop selling Chobani greek yogurt next year as it moves away from foods containing GMOs (genetically modified organisms).

The high-end grocery chain will stop selling the yogurt by January, The Wall Street Journal reports.

“Chobani markets its Greek yogurt as containing only natural ingredients, but it has received complaints from consumer advocacy groups for its use of milk that comes from dairy cows fed with GMO animal feed,” WSJ writes.

The Greek yogurt manufacturer’s business has exploded in recent years on increased demand for the thick and creamy yogurt.

But the Whole Foods’ snub is Chobani’s second disaster this year.

In September, Chobani recalled 35 flavours of yogurt after more than 100 people reportedly fell ill after eating it.
