    So, while these could be in pet food, they are also in a whole lot of human food.
    I equate cellulose with cardboard-but that's just my brain. 'Methylcellulose'.

    Put a beef patty and an Impossible patty next to each other and I bet any dog would scarf the beef patty first.

    It's mind boggling to me that you'd expect BK to have a 2nd grill strictly for the impossible burgers. If you went through the drive thru you wouldn't know where it was cooked. Maybe cooking it to the side, and if you've ever manned a grill you used the flat side spatula to clear the grease before you cook the next one, so it's not like it's soaking in the grease. Doesn't BK use a moving grill rack for it's burgers anyway?

    It may very well be prepared on a separate area of the grill apart from where the beef is prepared. I wonder if he actually stood and watched them cook beef and then the veggie burger or if he just made an assumption.

    Good point JamesStorage Not being a beef-eater (but not a vegetarian or vegan), I can understand the point. I wouldn't want a plant-based burger that was cooked on the same grill as a meat-based one. It might seem obvious that it'd be cooked on the same grill but, really, it isn't. I had no idea. I mean, how can you call it a plant-based, non-meat product if you let it touch meat products? That'd be like making something that's "nut-free" on the same counter top as products that have nuts. (Don't @ me about the allergy vs. preference. It's just an example.)

    Suing is over the top, but maybe the guy is trying to force BK to make a change. We all know that fighting a corporation takes big action.

    When you have preferences or diet restrictions, it's tough to find alternatives. I'm sure this person was excited a huge fast-food chain was offering something he could eat. It's actually disappointing they didn't think this through.

    In the PC WORLD it is never as simple as just "changing the channel". "No two are alike" when it comes to common sense.

    Going at it from the vegan view was stupid. If he had gone at it from the food prep standpoint it probably would gain a lot more weight. After all, we’re always told not to prep meat and other food on the same cutting board, and who knows what’s in those grill leavings. Plus, imagine if it was eaten by someone who’s culture doesn’t eat beef. I imagine they’d be horrified. Of course they could always just not eat there...

    He should sue too because the person preparing the "burger" was not a vegetarian. This place is all kinds of tainted....

    I think BK says they show where it says the customer can have the Impossible Whopper cooked a different way if they want. The way it tastes like meat is that the patty is loaded with saturated fats.

    Besides the fact that you can see into the kitchens in most BK. He probably watched them cook it while rubbing his hands together and money signs dancing in his head. He's mostly mad because he could taste the real meat and loved it, but he won't mention that part lol

    I heard that on the news last night and laughed and laughed! Next they'll be screaming they thought the mayo was vegan too, because, you know...idiots
    The patty IS meatless but they never stated it would be cooked separately.
