Terre, I can't find anything about customers being given plant based food instead of real meat.

I only found articles about one Burger King location delivering real beef burgers to people ordering Impossible Burgers. Impossible Burgers were not available at that location even though the app listed Impossible Burgers as a choice. The customers were supposed to be told by the drivers the burgers were beef when the order was delivered, but that wasn't happening. Regardless, the manager made the wrong decision to substitute beef for a plant based order. I definitely agree someone at management level should know you don't ignore possible food allergies.

The manager there should have had employees inform the customers when they tried to order that there was a mistake on the website and the meatless wasn't available at that location.

Oh I agree. If Burger King was provided the customer's phone number with the order, they should have contacted the customer to explain the Impossible Meat Burger wasn't available at that location. Of course, everyone is going to blame someone else for why an option was listed as available at a specific location when it wasn't available there.


Thanks Terre for the NZ article.

People really need to pay more attention to what's being advertised. Of course people are going to assume a pizza topped with medium rare burger patty meant meat. But it shouldn't be assumed that "burger patty" means beef. It could just have easily meant by-products and corn/grain.

While I read the labels of everything I purchase, I don't tend to question what's in food served in a restaurant. Yet that's exactly when we should be on high alert.

Here's another: Outrage after fast food company secretly serves unsuspecting customers meat-free burger patties on the same company. I can't find the other I remember seeing.
Ah, it was Burger King: Burger King Is Offering the Meatless Impossible Whopper After First Tricking People Into Thinking It's Real Beef
People REALLY need to be careful and the companies need to be open about possible subs.
That's why I like that 50/50 idea. Customers who want to take a chance can choose to do so. No one else is going to get a random product. People who want meat or want meatless will get what they order.

Oh I agree. Companies MUST be open and honest about what they are serving. The 50/50 idea is great for someone wanting a blind test for whether they really can tell a difference.

I probably couldn't tell the difference because I eat meat so rarely.

I did try Beyond Meat chicken strips once. The package cautioned not to overcook it.

But ... I did. By a lot.

You really, really, REALLY should not overcook Beyond Meat.

@Satira Capriccio ; My husband and I first came across this problem a number of years ago. We had gotten in the habit of getting me a foot long roast beef sub at Subway and him a tub of meatballs. Then one day he had a soy reaction after eating the meatballs. He couldn't get the local manager to realize that the company had changed the meatballs from pure beef to a beef/soy mix. The company hadn't informed every store yet about the change. That was the last time we purchased anything from Subway.

No worries, I won't overcook it. I won't even buy it!

From what is being said about the beef I suspect that you'd have liked the chicken if it hadn't been over done. I need to keep that brand in mind for the next time someone asks about meat free meat at the store. We do have a small, but growing, vegetarian customer base.
