spoiled greek yogurt

I had a small greek yogurt that turned to liquid and curdled, though the curds were very small--almost grainy. It was one of those unopened 6 oz containers. It was not past its due date and had been in the refrigerator. What happened?

Perhaps somewhere along the line it was mistreated. There's no way to know what happened to it before you put it in your shopping basket. Let your grocer know what happened - you'll likely get a refund, plus help them identify a potential problem on they're end.

Thanks! Come to think of it, this happened to me once before from this same store. I'll definitely mention it. Does anyone know why it broke down and became completely liquidy. I'm used to dairy going moldy when bad or, in the case of milk, turning sour.

Maybe it was left out of the refrigeration case for too long and then replaced. A little heat tends to make yogurt separate and curdle.

suggestion- hope you will ask for a refund; your right/their responsibility. and it's the best conduit to bring it to the manager's attention-as a problem area.
