Stop To Hear This About Your Yogurt And Chicken

Your yogurt might be no good and you may be doing something wrong with your chicken.

CNN's Elizabeth Cohen reports.

First up, Chobani brand yogurt has had to recall certain products they suspect are tainted  from shelves after customers take to Twitter to complain of oddities.

One post said, "The strawberry tastes really old."

Another: "My vanillia yogurts...taste like wine. is this bad?"

After an investigation, the Chobani company says it was mold. They haven't specified how it happened but say the questionable yogurt accounts for less than 5% of its production.

The Food and Drug Administration says there have been no reports of illnesses and Sarah Klein, a representative from a public health group says:

"It's certainly unsavory but it's more of a quality than a safety issue. It's unlikely that you're going to become very ill from eating this mold."

Now for the chicken. A new food safety campaign warns against washing chicken before you cook it.

A graphic from Drexel University shows when you wash your raw chicken, you send bacteria splattering all over the place.

You're definitely better off just making sure the meat is cooked thoroughly.
