Start panicking: Team USA has a yogurt problem

Sochi, we have a yogurt problem.

Yogurt maker Chobani is a sponsor of the US Olympic team and has put together a shipment of Greek yogurt to feed the hungry athletes at the Winter Games.

Apparently, the shipment is stuck in limbo at Newark International Airport because of "unattainable" Russian Customs certifications.

But don’t worry, US Senator Charles Schumer of New York is on the case. He’s made a public plea to the Russian government to allow the yogurt to be sent to the athletes. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has requested that Russia approve a USDA safety certificate for the yogurt, but Schumer said Russia still won’t allow the shipment. The senator also promises that the yogurt will be eaten only by U.S. citizens in Sochi.
