“ DNA tests revealed that in the two most serious cases, the vegetarian patties and ham of one vendor and vegetarian dried shredded pork from another vendor contained at least 20 percent beef or pork, Pu said. „

Taipei, Taiwan Investigation Bureau makes some disgusting findings.

The article tells us is that 17 out of 31 “vegetarian food vendors in Taipei city and county” were selling lies, and some may have been doing it accidentally (not that that excuses it, but it’s better than deliberately, YOU KNOW?). What the article does not say is whether any of these products were sent to foreign markets.

UGH the whole affair is just so (sorry) distasteful (really, sorry). Should we avoid foreign-made meat substitutes until further notice? Should we maybe ask our contact in the FDA to pull some strings, see if we can’t get a similar investigation performed here? Should we just give up and become produce-tarians, eating only what grows from the earth in, and its most natural form?

Well maybe that last idea is pretty terrible, but can anyone think of a reasonable course of action? Besides, of course, NOT PANICKING. Vegansaurus cautions against panicking of any nature (at this time).
