The FDA has received more than 325 consumer complaints of illnesses associated with Daily Harvest brand frozen Lentil & Leek Crumbles.

The 329 reports are up from the 277 reported by the Food and Drug Administration on July 14, according to an outbreak update from the agency. When the FDA first reported the situation on June 28 it had received 277 complaints.

The FDA’s investigation into the situation is ongoing. Anyone who believes they have become ill because of consuming the crumbles should contact the FDA by clicking here.

Daily Harvest officials were aware of illness reports before the FDA and on June 17 initiated a recall of its Lentil & Leek Crumbles. All lot codes of the French Lentil + Leek Crumbles are affected. The product was distributed nationwide and in two retail locations; the Daily Harvest store in Chicago, IL, and a “pop-up” store in Los Angeles, CA.

The company reports having received 470 consumer complaints of illnesses.

Sicknesses have involved relatively minor symptoms to sever situations involving liver failure. The FDA reports 113 patients have been hospitalized. At least 25 of the patients have had to have their gall bladders removed. The last illness onset was July 16.

Symptoms have included yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice), dark urine, itching with no rash, gastrointestinal illness, nausea, fatigue, body aches, severe abdominal pain and/or fever after consuming this product.

The FDA advises anyone who has eaten the Daily Harvest product and developed symptoms to please consult with a healthcare provider and let them know you have recently consumed the recalled Daily Harvest French Lentil & Leek Crumbles. Healthcare providers should report these illnesses to their health department.

Since the recall the company has announced that there may be a link to the illnesses from tara flour used in the crumbles. The company owner says no other Daily Harvest products have tara flour as an ingredient.
