A vegan man claims Burger King cooked Impossible Whopper alongside meat
(CNN Business)A man is suing Burger King because the meatless Impossible Whopper is cooked on the same grill as meat products, the lawsuit alleges.
The class action lawsuit, filed Monday in the Southern District of Florida, claims that although the burger chain advertises its vegan option as meat-free, it is contaminated by meat by-product because it's cooked on the same grill as meat products.
The suit accuses Burger King of false advertising and benefiting monetarily from offering a vegan option that is not in fact vegan.
Burger King declined to comment to several media outlets. CNN's sister network HLN has reached out to Burger King for a response to the allegations in the lawsuit but has not yet heard back.
