This Online Meal Service Ingredient Caused Another Illness Outbreak
Daily Harvest recalled their Lentil & Leek Crumbles snack in June after nearly 500 people got sick after eating it.
Another company has a sickening product. Revive Superfoods is being sued over a website smoothie.
A Revive Superfoods customer claims she was hospitalised three times after drinking the Mango and Pineapple smoothie.
On July 14, the FDA received 277 Daily Harvest sickness reports. Over 470 reports have been received. Nearly 100 consumers had jaundice, stomach aches, and liver damage.
Food poisoning caused gallbladder resection and, in one case, a liver transplant. Both companies use tara flour, but in distinct ways.
Daily Harvest CEO Rachel Drori revealed on July 19 that tara flour caused the outbreak. The crumbles contain this Peruvian plant-based protein.
It's in Revive Superfoods' Mango and Pineapple smoothie. More Revive smoothie buyers report becoming sick and needing hospitalisation.
The company informed customers about the epidemic, saying it has ceased distributing the goods, but there's no information on the website.
Due to the smoothie's extended shelf life, reports could continue for weeks or months. The FDA is investigating.
Doctors were stumped by the Daily Harvest disease outbreak because it wasn't a conventional food poisoning and most infectious bacteria, such listeria, were ruled out.
A consumer who had their gallbladder removed is suing Daily Harvest. Many have termed the company's emailed recall advisory lacklustre given the issue's seriousness.
From April 28 to June 17, nearly 30,000 products were mailed to clients in 34 states.
