Reports of illness linked to a popular yogurt brand continue to rise, after a batch was found to be infested with a type of mold.

Chobani has been voluntarily yanking its Greek yogurt from shelves after customers began reporting that some cups were fizzy and smelled bad. Last week, the company released a statement saying its investigation revealed a type of mold commonly found in the dairy environment.

The Food and Drug Administration says it's received at least 89 reports of people getting sick after eating the yogurt. The agency says the reports have not been confirmed.

Chobani advises customers to toss out containers with expiration dates from Sept. 9 to Oct. 7 and a code of 16-012. The company says most of the affected yogurts have already been removed from stores.
