Smell from AC 2017 Pacifica

I have had my 2017 Pacifica LTD since Sept 1 2016. Since it was new, when you first run it, the AC blows a foul smell into the cabin. Smells like stinky feet. I have never driven it bare footed. The smell is strong and dissipates after a while. Next time I drive it, same thing. Sometimes worse than others. Sometimes worse than ever, like yesterday. I have taken the cabin filter out and it does not smell, I had purchased a new one so I installed it anyway. I Googled it and many other owners have the same issue but I have not seen a resolution to the problem. It's as if condensation sits in the blower mechanism after it has run for a while and turns smelly and then you get a blast of it when you first turn it on again. My air fresheners cannot compete or mask the smell. Any thoughts?

That's interesting: a star case for the '17s AC...

"Just to chime in, there is a Star Case for the 2017 models and relates to the odor smell you're referring to. If you'd like to work with the dealership, feel free to send us a direct message and reference this message. We'd be glad to get this process started.
