Man sues Burger King over meat-free Impossible Whopper claim

(CNN) — A vegan is filing a lawsuit against Burger King over its “Impossible Whopper,” claiming it’s falsely promoted as meat-free.

The proposed class-action lawsuit says they’re cooked on the same grill as regular burgers — so they’re contaminated with meat.

The suit accuses Burger King of deceptive practices by not disclosing they’re cooked on the same grill, even though Burger King’s online menu says the Impossible Whopper is “zero percent beef” and says “for guests looking for a meat-free option, a non-broiler method of preparation is available upon request.”

The suit seeks compensation for everyone who bought the burger and for Burger King to clearly disclose on the menu that they use the same grill for all burgers.

Burger King hasn’t commented on the lawsuit.
