Of course not: 1) it contains double-gluten (rye, barley) and 2) is not organic. (Do you know what they spray weeds with? Dandelion is considered a weed, it's the most sprayed of them all. Look up Round-up Ready).

The dandelion roots used are grown commercially just like carrots. As another post pointed out - there are water extracts and no glutens.
Dandy blend beverage promotes good gut health without caffeine, so would not be contraindicated for pregnant women.

Yes, it is safe. Dandelion root according to the FDA is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS), meaning there is not sufficient clinical research to definitively say yes or no, but it is so commonly consumed with no consequences that it is generally understood to be safe.
As for the comment about roundup, the dandelion products you purchase and consume are grown specifically for consumption, so no producer would ever spray roundup weed killer on their crop to kill it as someone with dandelion growing in their grassy yard or driveway might. It is farmed specifically to be eaten. Just like there is fennel growing everywhere along our highways, no one is harvesting that and selling it at the market. There may be dandelion root farmed with pesticides to kill pests, but that’s why you shop organic if that’s your concern.
