The Daily Crop

Service that delivers vegan meals to your door Customers who ate Daily Harvest’s French Lentil and Leek Crumbles have reported serious health problems as a result of the product’s voluntary recall.

A number of those who had been affected, including Abigail Silverman, used social media to share their stories and warn others. Silverman went to the hospital with severe abdominal pain the day after eating the lentil crumbles. Even though it’s been a month, her elevated liver enzymes are still bothering her.

Several people on social media have complained of similar health issues after eating the crumbles of lentils and leeks. Many people have shared their experiences on a Reddit thread, describing everything from stomach pain and fever to jaundice and elevated liver enzyme levels.

Daily Harvest issued a statement on June 22 urging anyone who has the crumbles of lentil and leek to dispose of them. The FDA has also begun an investigation to determine the source of the health problems.

Some have criticized Daily Harvest’s response to the allegations, despite the fact that they have issued a voluntary recall. As a result of Daily Harvest’s initial Instagram post, which didn’t mention the recall or health scares, but instead referred viewers to the “link in bio” for more information, social media users were outraged.

There is speculation that lentils can be toxic if they aren’t cooked properly, which has been linked to the outbreak. Lectin, a protein present in raw lentils, has the potential to trigger adverse reactions such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea in some people. Lentils should be soaked and cooked to the proper temperature to prevent illness.
