Following 470 reports of sickness, including digestive problems and probable liver damage, Daily Harvest announced in a notice published by the Food and Drug Administration on Thursday that it is recalling a dish of lentil and leek crumbles. From April 28 to June 17, the firm reported that over 28,000 pieces of the recalled product were sent to consumers all throughout the country via online sales, direct delivery, the shop in Chicago, Illinois, and a “pop-up” shop in Los Angeles, California.
According to Daily Harvest, samples were also supplied to “a small number of consumers.” Customers were instructed to search their freezers for the recalled goods and toss it. After internet influencers received the product as part of Daily Harvest PR push, further reports of individuals becoming sick appeared on TikTok. Abigail Silverman, the creative director, spoke about being admitted to the hospital with significant stomach ache one day after eating the crumbles in a TikTok video.
All lots of the product are impacted, and it is labelled as French Lentil + Leek Crumbles in a frozen product packaged in a 12-ounce white bag with the words “Daily Harvest” at the top, a big “CRUMBLES” below it, and the phrases “French Lentil + Leek” in bold.
Following social media complaints from consumers who had consumed Daily Harvest French Lentil and Leek Crumbles, the business announced a recall. After consuming the food, individuals on Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, and Twitter reported experiencing symptoms including nausea, vomiting, and liver damage. According to a Reddit member, their spouse reported “severe exhaustion, black urine, low-grade fever, and all-over itching without rash.”
