No link has been confirmed between the illnesses and the yogurt.

However, Ward says the FDA is working with Chobani to hasten its voluntary recall.

Last Thursday, Chobani spokeswoman Amy Juaristi said 95 percent of the tainted product had been destroyed.

The affected yogurt cups have the code 16-012 and expiration dates between Sept. 11 and Oct. 7.

Health officials have said the yogurt is not a public health threat, but the company said last week the ‘‘mold can act as an opportunistic pathogen for those with compromised immune systems.’’
