Daily Harvest Recall Attorneys
Assisting Clients Across the Nation
In June 2022, Daily Harvest – a popular plant-based meal delivery service – announced the recall of nearly 30,000 of its products following consumer reports of severe illnesses. According to the company, its “French Lentil + Leek Crumbles” product has been linked to severe gastrointestinal illnesses, liver failure, and gallbladder damage. At least 450 such reports have been collected by the food delivery company so far, which believes the product’s tara flour to be the source of the illnesses.

Sicknesses Caused by Daily Harvest
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are investigating the hundreds of illnesses reported by Daily Harvest consumers. The confirmed link between them all is the French Lentil + Leek Crumbles product, including all manufacturing lot codes or batches. Daily Harvest recently announced tara flour is the suspected source of the illnesses because none of its other products use that ingredient. Some symptoms are similar to jaundice, which raises serious questions about why the tara flour would cause such unsafe reactions in consumers.
Commonly reported symptoms of potential Daily Harvest food poisoning are:
- Severe stomach pain
- High fever
- Dark urination
- Itches with no rash
- Body soreness
- Jaundice-like symptoms like yellowing eyes
In severe cases, liver and gallbladder damage have been reported. Again, jaundice is known to cause many of these symptoms, including internal organ damage. Jaundice is often caused by hepatitis complications and nutrient deficiencies.
The CDC has announced that at least 96 people have been hospitalized with connections to the French Lentil + Leek Crumbles product. The reports have come from more than 30 states, so it seems that all batches of this product are unsafe, regardless of where they were shipped. Early tests by Daily Harvest also suggest that listeria, E. coli, salmonella, staphylococcus, and other common foodborne pathogens are not the cause of these illnesses.
What to Do If You Have Daily Harvest
If you are subscribed to Daily Harvest, you should immediately stop consuming the French Lentil + Leek Crumbles product. Do not discard the product, though, as it could be crucial for an investigation or lawsuit. Instead, store it in a sealed container that cannot be accessed by children and pets. Clearly label that it is not for consumption.
