Daily Harvest, a food delivery company, has recalled its lentil and leek crumbs dish after customers complained that they caused stomach problems.
Reddit, Twitter, and Instagram users reported experiencing nausea, vomiting, and liver damage after eating the dish.
Reddit user says their wife suffered from symptoms like "extreme fatigue," dark urine, low grade fever, and itching throughout the body.
Another user claimed that their mom was "as sick as a dog" and had trouble urinating after eating the beans.
Sunday's statement by the company urged consumers to throw out this dish, and it said that it had reached out to all those who had received it.
It stated that it had launched an investigation simultaneously with both internal and external experts in our supply chain, and in compliance with regulatory procedures. We will share additional information as soon as we have it."
Daily Harvest sent a link to this statement to 600,000 of its followers on Instagram with the caption: "An important message about our French Lentil + Leek Crusts." The company received further criticism by linking in its bio with more details.
"Why not include the important message within the caption?" Your social media aesthetic is more important than the health of consumers. One person stated it.
Another said, "This unclear caption shows that Daily Harvest doesn't care about customers' well-being, despite its brand as a healthy option."
Daily Harvest, a subscription food company that was founded in 2015, is committed to using only healthy produce in its recipes.
