More Than 2,000 Products Recalled by Popular Meal Delivery Service

Updated: May 29, 2024

Recalls tend to affect supermarket brands, but a late-breaking concern highlights the possible risk for meal delivery kits...perhaps especially in the warm months.

When that fresh meal subscription arrives, it’s fun to tear open the box of ingredients or that first seal-packed dish for easy preparation. But even if meal delivery kits save significant time you used to spend grocery shopping, it can be especially key to listen out for recall concerns—especially when you think about the time those kits spend outside direct refrigeration.

One example of a meal delivery service’s food safety issue occurred around 2022, when CNN reported that the clean-eating subscription delivery brand Daily Harvest spent several months managing a recall related to their lentil and leek “Crumbles” product.

Now, another recognizable meal delivery company is reportedly recalling a comfort food dinner after reports of potential food safety questions. According to Food Safety News (FSN), Fresh n Lean parent company, Nutrition Corp, is recalling 2,119 of their Crustless Chicken Potato Pot Pies due to potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination.

It’s reported that the recall was initiated on April 25, 2024 and is ongoing, and that the recalled products were distributed to customers nationwide.
The recalled pot pies are packaged in vacuum-sealed plastic trays with an expiration date of May 8, 2024. It’s not reported how the possible Listeria contamination was brought to the company’s attention, but FSN recommends that anyone who has purchased or received the pot pie product should not consume it and instead should discard it. Customers may also wish to contact the company.
Fresh n Lean produces a range of lines to respond to dietary interests, including keto- and Whole30-friendly menus.

Listeria infection symptoms

Eating a food contaminated with Listeria can cause you to experience symptoms within a few days, or up to 30 days later, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Symptoms of a Listeria infection can include:

For people who are 65 years or older, people who are pregnant or people with compromised immune systems, Listeria infection can be fatal. If you believe you’ve ingested something contaminated with Listeria and are experiencing the symptoms above, be sure to talk to your doctor immediately.
