Impossible Burger issues voluntary recall

in Community/Featured/Headline

Redwood City-based Impossible Foods has issued a voluntary recall after a California restaurant found a piece of plastic in a bulk Impossible Burger product, according to a report by Eater.

The product was not served to anyone, but the voluntary recall was issued out of extreme caution. The spokesperson for the company says they are “taking preventative measures to ensure the safety of our product and the operations of our food manufacturing plant.”

The company is asking all operators to throw away product with the lot number OAK19050000, which appears on product cases and on the five-pound packaged blocks of vegan burger, and they will compensate any distributor forced to get rid of their product.
