Albany, New York- Members of team USA who want Chobani Yogurt for breakfast at the Olympics have to wait for the wheels of bureaucracy to move.

The 5,000 cups of yogurt is tied up in a web of international trade negotiations and sits in a refrigerated warehouse in upstate New York waiting to be flown to the Olympic village.

Authorities in Russia say the U.S. Department of Agriculture has refused to provide a certificate required for dairy products under its customs rules.

The USDA says its working with the Russians to reach a solution that'll allow the Chobani to go through despite no agreement on general trade requirements for dairy products.
