Looks like a few vegans have caught Burger King! Apparently, their new Impossible Burger, which contains no meat, is being cooked on the same grill as meat!
A man named Phillip Williams has filed a class-action lawsuit against Burger King claiming the restaurant advertises the new burger as a safe alternative for vegans yet its all cooked on the same grill. Williams said when he purchased a burger, it was contaminated by meat byproducts.
The lawsuit says Burger King has no disclosures on its menu that would notify a consumer prior to the purchase of the Impossible Whopper that it was cooked in a manner that would result in meat by-products on the burger.
Williams wants the judge to order Burger King to stop cooking these vegan burgers with real burgers.
