Yoghurt Wars 2

Chobani Yoghurt banned!

Or, rather, removed from the shelves of Whole Foods Supermarkets.

After a bit of digging, it turns out that Chobani Yoghurt, sponsor of the Olympics and owner of a ship load of yoghurt that was refused to be unladen in Russia, is to be removed from Whole Foods, also. It turns out that Chobani will not follow Whole Foods directive that all suppliers list Genetically Modified Ingredients on their containers, so they are to be banned there, too.

I could not actually find Russia's reason, but it is probably related to the fact that GM grains are in the feed of the dairies that ship their milk to Chobani.

Nice that we have to dig into the news ourselves. Investigative journalist are made, not born.
