A group of vegans is claiming it’s impossible to have it their way at Burger King.
A class-action lawsuit was reportedly 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 byproducts because it was cooked on the same apparatus as beef Whoppers, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
According to Williams, who reportedly purchased the fake-meat burger in Atlanta, Ga., vegans all over the country are outraged at the fast-food chain’s cooking practices, which involve cooking the Impossible patties, beef patties and chicken in the same broiler, TMZ reports.
Burger King has shared that vegan or vegetarian guests can request their patties be prepared in an oven instead of in the broiler. (Burger King)
