We already know that many of these places do silly things because they are in opposite world and backwards day...all the time! But this one has to take the cake!

https://www.vox.com/future-perfect/2...-meatless-meat

"This week, a new law went into effect in Mississippi. The state now bans plant-based meat providers from using labels like “veggie burger” or “vegan hot dog” on their products. Such labels are potentially punishable with jail time. Words like “burger” and “hot dog” would be permitted only for products from slaughtered livestock. Proponents claim the law is necessary to avoid confusing consumers — but given that the phrase “veggie burger” hasn’t been especially confusing for consumers this whole time, it certainly seems more like an effort to keep alternatives to meat away from shoppers."

As one of the unhealthiest states in the USA - and the most Obese - and with the most heart disease and mortality problems from Diet...such a move is the complete opposite of logic and reason!

There is ZERO evidence that consumers are confused.......I certainly have never been.

Maybe a someone here can school us on why government should promote foods which are more polluting and vastly unhealthier?

Some people like the real thing than some fake garbage named the same way.

It’s Mississippi. It’s not even 1990 there yet. Give ‘em time. They’re still taking the signs off the water fountains, public restrooms and lunch counters. SMH

I'm sorry, but if people in Mississippi actually get confused about a vegan hot dog, they have bigger issues to worry about than accidentally eating a healthier meal.

stupid though this is, it’s the term that was banned, not the product.

Healthier? I submit that vegan crap is over processed and full of preservatives.

Some of them are just as bad (Beyond Burgers, I'm looking at you...) but the brand my husband and I buy are made only of black beans, quinoa, spinach, and hemp seeds. No saturated fat or cholesterol, low sodium.

Now if I eat that, the after effects will clear a room and destroy your sense of smell.
