Daily Harvest Product Recalled After Outbreak
DAILY HARVEST RECALL UPDATE JULY 19,2022
Daily Harvest has identified tara flour, a high-protein, low-carb flour made from the tara tree, as the ingredient responsible for making as many as 470 people sick. All testing has indicated the issue is isolated to that one product. Daily Harvest CEO Rachel Drori issued this statement, “This was the first and only time we’ve used tara flour, which has been available and used in the North American market as a plant-based source of protein prior to our use. Our investigation team will continue working with the FDA, the tara flour producer and others to help determine what specifically made people sick.” Daily Harvest will not disclose where they were sourcing tara flour from at this time.
According to the FDA on June 23, 2022, Daily Harvest has voluntarily recalled all French Lentil + Leek Crumbles due to consumer reports of gastrointestinal illness and potential liver function issues. From April 28 to June 17, 2022, approximately 28,000 units of the recalled product were distributed to consumers in the continental United States through online sales and direct delivery, as well as through retail sales at the Daily Harvest store in Chicago, IL and a “pop-up” store in Los Angeles, CA. Samples were also provided to a small number of consumers. Daily Harvest directly notified by email those consumers who were shipped the affected product, and other consumers for whom the company had contact information, and consumers were issued a credit for the recalled product. Consumers who may still have the recalled product in their freezers should immediately dispose of it.
French Lentil + Leek Crumbles is a frozen product packaged in a 12oz white pouch with the words “Daily Harvest” at the top, a large “CRUMBLES” immediately below the top and the words “French Lentil + Leek” in bold, as shown below.

To date, the company has received approximately 470 reports of illness or adverse reactions. Consumer safety is our highest priority, and we have taken immediate steps to stop production and distribution of the product and conduct a root cause investigation, which is ongoing.This recall is being made in cooperation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
