Vegans are suing Burger King over contamination of the Impossible Burgers having meat from the grill.
Phillip Williams filed a class-action lawsuit in Atlanta, claiming the burger chain advertises the Impossible Burger as a vegan alternative but cooks them on the same grill as their meat varieties.
Williams says his burger was contaminated by meat by-products. He claims Burger King has no disclosures that would inform consumers prior to purchase of the Impossible Whoppers that meat by-products cross contamination is possible.
Williams wants damages and for a judge to order Burger King to stop cooking Impossible Burgers beef burgers on the same grill.
