Another food delivery service is facing two new lawsuits over claims that customers were sickened and hospitalized because of its products.
Revive Superfoods says it has stopped selling its mango and pineapple smoothie out of an abundance of caution, but the company has not recalled the smoothie, meaning customers who already had it in their freezers. Yes, they will not know.

Shortly after the birth of Nadia Altribi’s third child, Altribi says she was hospitalized three separate times for severe stomach pains, fever and elevated liver levels after drinking Revive Superfoods mango and pineapple smoothies. Done.
“I felt like I was going to die,” Alaterby said.
“I didn’t know if I would be able to live for my children and no one had the answers,” she continued.
A lawsuit filed Monday by Eletribi against Revive Superfoods says they continue to suffer symptoms.
On June 17, food delivery service Daily Harvest recalled broken pieces of its French lentils + leeks after hundreds of customers became ill and were hospitalized after eating the product. Some had their gall bladders removed.
Last Tuesday, Daily Harvest CEO Rachel Drury said the company had identified the tara flour ingredient as the cause of the problem. Drury said the company’s research team will continue to work with the FDA, the maker of Tara flour and others to help determine what specifically made people sick.

“As soon as I read about Daily Harvest and found out what happened to all of these victims, it just sounded like my story,” Alaterby said.
Tara Protein Review is an ingredient in Superfoods’ mango and pineapple smoothies.
The same day Daily Harvest announced its star, the CEO of Revive Superfoods told OlxPraca that the company contacted regulatory authorities and removed it from further sale on its website. The CEO of the company says that they have also tested extensively for all major pathogens/toxins/allergens and all results have come back negative.
Daily Harvest has also said that all his tests have come back negative.
“We don’t even know what the long-term effects are going to be on anybody,” Alaterby said.
“I had to leave my children and my newborn baby and I didn’t know what was wrong with me,” she continued.

On Monday, the CEO of Revive Superfoods told OlxPraca that the company is communicating directly with consumers and working with the FDA/CFIA to identify any potential issues.
A customer with an incoming order says he received an email from Revive Superfoods on Monday informing him that the ingredients used in Tara Protein, a mango and pineapple smoothie, had recently been discontinued. An abundance of caution was pulled by one of Revive Superfoods’ competitors. Revive Superfoods has decided to stop shipping the product for now.
But some customers who received an earlier shipment say they haven’t been contacted by Revive Superfoods and the smoothies in question are still in their freezers.
“It should be remembered. No one else should go through what we went through,” Altribi said.
Customer Christina T says she was recently hospitalized after drinking a Revive Superfoods Mango and Pineapple Smoothie last Sunday, July 17.

“I think it’s so irresponsible. I drank four of those mango-pineapple smoothies and went to the hospital four times. And really, if my mom hadn’t seen your story, I’d still be drinking them and probably come back. Jata. Hospital,” said Christina T., who asked that we not use her full last name.
She says she is consulting with a lawyer about possible next steps.
On Friday, Consumer Reports, a nonprofit consumer advocacy group, recommended that consumers stop eating products with tara flour until more is understood about what causes the illnesses.
But the FDA, which is investigating, has made no recommendations about tara flour and says it names ingredients or ingredient suppliers only when the ingredient is linked to illness or injury. There is enough evidence.
