Negligence Claim Arises due to Contaminated Food Product

A Delaware couple filed a complaint on July 18 against Daily Harvest Inc., alleging negligence and other claims. Daniel and Lindsey Davis alleged the defendant’s French “Lentil & Leek Crumbles” caused Daniel to suffer from acute liver toxicity, causing abdominal pain, fevers, and chills.

The plaintiffs further claim that Daily Harvest’s food was not fit for human consumption and constitutes a breach of implied warranty. Additionally, they allege Daily Harvest failed to comply with federal, state, and local laws and safety codes with the distribution and sale of its food products. The plaintiffs are seeking monetary relief, trial by jury, and all other just relief.

Just in the last week, four other major food companies recalled their products due to product deficiencies. One popular brand, King’s Hawaiian, recalled its “Pretzel Slider Buns” because an ingredient used in the products can potentially cause “microbial contamination including from the organism Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum.” KraftHeinz’s also recalled about 5,760 cases of their popular children’s product, Capri Sun, after discovering a specific variety of juice pouches contained cleaning solution.
