Women Thinks Quorn is Gross, Files Lawsuit

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Having never seen Quorn sold in stores, we made the mistake of thinking Quorn is a vegan meat. It’s come to our attention that Quorn has eggs, and is NOT a suitable protein for vegans.

They say that in the United States, you can sue for anything. This time, popular meat replacement, Quorn, seems to be having its time in the spotlight. A consumer named Kimberly Birbower has decided to file a class action lawsuit, all because she doesn’t approve of the product’s ingredients. Quorn is made out of a mushroom-derived “mycoprotein,” which means it is yes, in fact, a mold. But if you’ve ever in your life consumed a mushroom, you’ve eaten straight-up fungus, too. I for one, love a good fungi topped vegan pizza. Quorn has a label on its boxes that states that a few instances of allergic reactions have come out of product consumption.

“The plaintiffs seeks to represent a class of California consumers who purchased Quorn products over the last four years,” wrote Top Class Actions on Birbower. “She is seeking injunctive relief, asking the company to cease its advertising saying the ingredients of the product are similar to or the same as mushrooms, morels and truffles. Birbower is also asking for a clear statement to alert consumers that the product contains mold.” Quorn is accused of making their products out of “fermented soil mold.” Sounds like a fancy way to describe something that is just about as gross as a shiitake.

Another lawsuit took place in 2013 after a child died after consuming Quorn products. The L.A. county medical examiner concluded that the boy had severe asthma, and had been placed on an organic diet in lieu of being medicated for his condition.

    I would say Quorn is GMO trash, but GMO hysteria is a proven distraction from animal rights issues.
