Updated May 13: Stonyfield has added 1,344 six-packs to the recall with the code date June 05 2014 (UPC 052159701161) due to coliform Klebsiella pneumoniae. The peach and pear yogurt packs were shipped to 271 more stores, including Safeway and Fred Meyer stores, in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska, and Northern California.

According to the FDA, “These bacteria are often found in healthy people and often don’t cause illness if they contaminate food and are eaten – but sometimes they do, although it’s not completely clear how or why. Some reasons may be that bacteria have variations in their genes, and, for the most part, their genes often undergo changes. Those changes sometimes affect whether or not the bacteria can cause illness and the severity of the illness. Whether or not they cause illness also may depend on the people who eat them – their health, their own genetic make‐up, and/or how much of the bacteria they eat. The illness these bacteria are thought to sometimes cause if they contaminate food is gastroenteritis – watery diarrhea and other symptoms that may include nausea, vomiting, cramps, pain, fever, and chills.”

Make way for another recall! Organic yogurt company Stonyfield has issued a voluntary recall on 188 four-ounce six-packs of YoBaby Organic Whole Milk Pear and Peach Yogurt Cups  after testing indicated that some of the product may be contaminated with coliform bacteria.  The cups were sold at 122 Target and Walmart stores on or after April 23, 2014.

Coliform bacteria indicates whether food or drinking water is sanitary or not, since they are easy to culture and don't usually cause illnesses alone. They can be found in water, soil and plants, and are normally present in the feces of warm-blooded animals.
