Throw Away Your Daily Harvest Lentil Crumbles ASAP

Daily Harvest, a food delivery company, has been under fire for recalling one of their products, the French Lentil + Leeks Crumbles. The company then informed consumers via an ambiguous Instagram posting.

Daily Harvest, Week One posted a photo of the recalled product on Instagram, with the caption: “An important message regarding our French Lentil + Leek Crumbles. Link in bio with details.” Many criticized the company for vaguely alluding to a problem with the food, which is reportedly causing various health issues for many consumers, instead of clearly warning people about the risk of eating it. “Why not include the important message in the caption? Is your social media aesthetic more important than consumers’ health?” one commenter wrote. Another commenter said, “This is an emergency not a P.R. stunt.” And another wrote: “This isn’t how you inform your customers that one of your products is sending people to the hospital.”
