No U.S. Greek yogurt for Olympic team

Controversy at the Sochi Olympics leaving one U.S. sponsor crying over spilled milk. The Russian government has blocked Greek yogurt maker Chobani from delivering product to the U.S. Olympians - citing food safety reasons, saying the proper customs paper work has not been filed. As a result, Chobani says 5,000 single-serve, as well as multi-serve containers, are stuck in a refrigerator near a U.S. airport, unable to board a plane. Chobani's New York home state Senator is urging Russia to lift the ban, saying the yogurt is safe and will only be consumed by the U.S. team. America's largest Greek yogurt producer competes with France's Danone, which happens to be Russia's biggest provider of milk and dairy products. So far, Russia remains on the offense in the international food fight.
