Burger King faces lawsuit from vegan customer over Impossible Whopper

Burger King is facing a lawsuit from a vegan customer who says that his Impossible Whopper was contaminated by being cooked on the same grill as the traditional meat burgers. In a proposed class action lawsuit, the customer said he would not have paid a premium price for a sandwich “coated in meat by-products." The lawsuit seeks damages for all U.S. customers who bought the Impossible Whopper and instruction for BK to “plainly disclose” that the two sandwiches are cooked on the same grill. Impossible has said that it made the products for meat eaters who are looking to eat less animal protein, not for vegan or vegetarians
