Burger King’s Impossible Burger
August 2020: The named plaintiffs filed a Notice of Appeal regarding the dismissal order.
July 2020: A federal judge dismissed this case concluding that Burger King delivered a non-meat patty, as advertised. The judge also denied class certification finding that the claims are too individualized.
November 2019: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Burger King for allegedly misleadingly marketing its Impossible Whopper Burger as meat-free and vegan when, according to plaintiffs, the Impossible burgers are covered in meat by-product because they are grilled on the same grills as traditional meat products.
