Yes. I even shut down my game after a few hours of playing (and restocking everything) and the same thing happened again to all of the new inventory/items.

I started a new game, so far my produce seems to stay put, but they're only normal quality at the moment.

I'll have to wait and see as I get further into the game if it keeps happening, and when my produce gets better quality.

 

Edit: nope. Still happens. 😡

After trying a few things yesterday to figure out what was going on, I came to the conclusion that any havestables above normal quality disappear from the 3 storage containers when you save and exit for sure.  a couple of oddities did show up.  When I traveled to the Magic Realm with half the household, when I returned, the harvestables above normal quality appeared to still be in the containers but couldn't be accessed by cooking or spellmaking cauldron.  When I traveled with the entire household, every harvestable above normal had disappeared upon return to the home lot.  Another thing was that I had laid out some flowers in a planting bed that were perfect but hadn't planted.  When I got back to the lot, they were still there.  Any harvestables in my traveling sims inventories also stayed there unit I saved, quit and restarted the game.  On opening the lot after the restart, everything above normal quality was gone again.  One last thing, before I traveled, I harvested some wild sage and parsley in Glimmerbrook and made note of the quantities of each.  All were normal and I stored a few of them in each container (fridge, box and flower bench).  Also bought some apples and potatoes in the magic realm, both normal quality.  On return from travel and after restart, all of the purchased harvestables and any I harvested from wild plants were still there.  Bottom line I think is any harvestable above normal quality will disappear.  The work around is to just use normal quality plants until a fix is made.  There are multiple ways to get them.  Seed packs, harvesting wild plants and buying from the various vendors in CL, RoM, harvesting festival plants, etc.

Harvestables disappearing

All of my harvested fruits/veggies are disappearing from my inventory when I travel somewhere and return home.

@CGrant56 I also noticed that when my scientist went to work he couldn't use the harvestables in his inventory. When he came home they disappeared. I did find out that I could sell the harvestables on the scientist lot even though I couldn't use them in serums. Thank you for the work around...using normal quality plants won't affect the serums, and I can just sell anything I'm growing.

All of my fruits vegetables and flowers disappear EVERY TIME I exit the game and reopen it (yes it is saving the game). My toddlers have no snacks and are starving because of the toddler bug and none of my sims have death flowers anymore. This has been an awful patch and I'm so angry!

@BantamMenace74  Good to know.  I haven't tried going to the lab yet.  Another thing that I tried today was playing a couple of other households for a few minutes.  All of their harvestables were there in their containers and inventories when I entered the lot.  This time I saved and exited to the main menu then went back in on the same save to the first household I was playing and all was still there.  So it seems that if you exit the game completely, then that's when the harvestables disappear.  Or maybe when you enter the first household after restarting the game from origin.  Still a bit puzzling though.
