Fruita woman finds plastic shards in yogurt
Company offers her more
A Fruita woman ended up in the emergency room after taking a few bites of yogurt. What she found in her all natural Greek yogurt wasn't nutritious at all. In fact, it wasn't even food.
We’ve all heard horror stories about the things people end up eating by accident.
But like most us, Kristi Fennelly never expected it to be her. She wants to make sure it doesn't happen to others.
"It scared me to think I could have cut my intestines or that I had ingested them," Kristi said.
When Kristi Fennelly dipped into her Chobani Greek Yogurt last week, there was an unexpected crunch.
"I took about three or four bites and there was something sharp in my mouth,” Kristi explained. “I took out three little sharp objects."
What she found was pieces of plastic but she doesn't know how they got there.
"I went to the ER to get an x-ray to make sure everything was okay,” She said. “I’m really thankful I wasn't feeding the yogurt to my baby.”
She contacted Chobani's corporate office, letting them know what happened.
"It would be terrible if somebody else had the same experience as me and sustained injuries," Kristi said.
"It seems they should have done a recall or something. It’s dangerous to have sharp objects in yogurt, especially if they have no idea or where it came from."
But that's not what the company is doing. In fact, what they offered Kristi, she doesn't even want.
"He said that he was sorry and he offered me coupons for the yogurt, or he said that he could send me a case,” Kristi Explained. “I politely declined because I don't think I will ever eat that brand again."
Kristi says Chobani asked her to send the plastic shards to them.
We reached out to the company for answers and are still waiting on a reply.
