If your Chobani yogurt tasted a bit "off" lately, you're not alone.

The Greek yogurt company has asked some supermarkets across the United States to pull some of its yogurt cups from shelves due to an issue with “swelling or bloating” that may have been caused by mold, according to Food Safety News.

No formal recall has been issued.

Instead, Chobani opted to voluntarily remove the affected products over what it called "isolated quality concerns."

The move came on Friday after several consumers complained about sour, foul-smelling Chobani yogurt cups. One said the strawberry flavor they bought tasted "really old."

Chobani says the affected product came from its Idaho facility and represents less than 5 percent of its total production. The company has been working with retailers to remove and replace containers with the code 16-012 and expiration dates Sept. 11 to Oct. 7.
