Meal delivery service Daily Harvest received about 470 reports of illness or adverse reactions due to its now recalled French Lentil + Leek Crumbles, according to a statement by the FDA. The FDA says it’s investigating the root cause.

Daily Harvest voluntarily recalled about 28,000 of the lentil meals on June 19 due to consumer reports of gastrointestinal illness and potential liver function issues. It received social media backlash for notifying consumers on Instagram via an aesthetically pleasing photo of the recalled product and a link in its bio.
