The vegan community want it their way by suing Burger King for their lack of vegan practices. The Impossible Burger, a vegan alternative based on their popular Whooper Burger, sent outraged complaints for contamination.
According to TMZ, plaintiff Philip Williams filed a class-action lawsuit, claiming Burger King advertising a vegan menu option, yet they’re being cooked on the same grill. Williams includes that his burger was contaminated by meat byproducts.
#Vegan News 🌱 I agree with THIS one .@BurgerKing You need a separate grill for the #ImpossibleWhopper. No vegan wants tortured flesh on their plant based burger. Can't believe you didn't think of this. I won't be supporting your menu until this is fixed. https://t.co/iol2Hdc7Sl

The lawsuit aims to order Burger King to modify these practices of cooking Impossible Burgers with other meat burgers on the same grill.
The Impossible Burger 2.0 rolled out after CES this past year offering a gluten-free and non-animal recipe. The Impossible patty is made from plants including soy protein, potato protein, coconut oil, and heme.
