The French Lentil + Leek Crumbles have been recalled by Daily Harvest, a direct-to-consumer food company that prides itself on offering one-step-prep organic and sustainably farmed foods, after almost 500 customers complained of stomach pains after consuming the product.
The company announced the recall in a press release on its website following reported symptoms of debilitating stomach pain, cramping, fever, jaundice, full-body itching, and other gastrointestinal complications including potential liver damage. Daily Harvest urged customers to throw away the product which was part of the company’s new plant-based protein line introduced a few months ago.
The FDA is now working to investigate the root cause of the outbreak and the severe gastrointestinal symptoms affecting consumers.
If you have consumed Daily Harvest French Lentil + Leek Crumbles and are experiencing food poisoning symptoms, we urge you to seek medical attention immediately.
