California’s popular burger chain is being petitioned to add a meat-free option to its menu.
Los Angeles-based activist Ari Solomon is spearheading a campaign via change.org asking California burger chain In-N-Out to serve a vegan-friendly meat-free option. The establishment recently cut ties with Central Valley Meat Co. following the slaughterhouse’s closure after a video by animal-welfare group Compassion Over Killing’s undercover investigator revealed inhumane treatment of cattle. Although Central Valley has since been approved to re-open, activists are seizing the opportunity to show chains the power of a compassionate customer base.
“I think it would be fantastic if In-N-Out would offer a veggie burger so that not only vegetarians and vegans could have a menu option, but also people looking to be healthier and do right by the environment,” says Solomon.
