Item from New York State not allowed in Sochi

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)- There is an item that cannot make the trip to Sochi, Chobani yogurt. This is thanks to a trade dispute between the United States and Russia over dairy exports.

The Greek yogurt company is an official sponsor of the US Olympic Team and Olympic athletes who have done television commercials for the brand.

Chobani is made in New York State. The Department of Agriculture says they are negotiating with the Russians.
