A group of vegans are claiming it’s impossible to have it their way at Burger King.
A lawsuit has been filed by Phillip Williams over the restaurant’s alleged cooking practices concerning the new Impossible Whopper.
Williams, a vegan, is claiming in the lawsuit that his Impossible Whopper – a plant-based alternative to the chain’s classic beef Whopper – was contaminated by meat by-products because it was cooked on the same grill as beef Whoppers.
According to Mr Williams, who reportedly purchased the fake-meat burger in Atlanta, vegans all over the USA are outraged at the fast-food chain’s cooking practices, which involve cooking the Impossible burgers, beef burgers and chicken burgers on the same grill.
In his lawsuit, Williams is seeking damages and requesting Burger King cook the Impossible Whopper on an entirely different grill.
Burger King have denied the claim and will defend the actions against their brand.
