Has anyone (vegan) contacted Burger King and others to ascertain whether or not the

vege burgers are cooked where no beef is cooked and that there's no crossing of utensils? I have emailed BK directly but have received no response. It is important info for me cuz I'm allergic to beef. If you've contacted them and received a response could you please post the information? Thanks,

1. I can guarantee you there's cross-contamination.

There's no way they will set aside an entire frying-station or an entire conveyor-belt grill just for ONE TYPE OF BURGER that somebody MIGHT order once in a while.

2. I know someone personally who works there. There is a

button on register for a no meat cross contamination method of cooking the Impossible Whopper. The cashier is supposed to give you the option/verify that you are/aren't a vegan while placing the order.
It's funny that I came across this post, this conversation just came up with my neighbor yesterday.

7. Thank you and DetlefK for your responses. I feel I'll be safer fixing my own vege burgers. I

guess it's small steps meaning that at some future point these fast food places will realize that a no-meat accommodation includes how it is prepared as well.

10. Your welcome. She kinda sounded like maybe the cashiers

aren't as strict about the button for every customer. So I personally would ask if I were a strict vegan.

3. Shocking, I am a meat eater. Now I worry about vegan stuff getting in my burger.

12. This is a forum for vegetarians and vegans.

But thanks for displaying the harassing behavior of so many meat-eaters against vegans.

6. So people shouldn't worry about it?

Don't get your point. Or why you'd feel the need to post that here.

13. It is, indeed.

It's only in the first world that people are able to support the kind of extreme cruelty and inhumanity that goes on at factory farms -- and are also able to say no to it.

14. Why the nastiness?

We live here, so even if it's just a small thing, we can make things even a little bit better.

17. Allergy to beef?

I looked it up and it's a real thing.

18. In the OP case, no.

They have a legitimate beef allergy. It happens. I believe it's a bite from the Lone Star tick that can cause allergies to mammalian flesh. My daughter's friend actually has it.
