Burger King is being taken to court over their meatless "Impossible Whoppers"

A customer claims the chain contaminates the meatless "Impossible Whoppers" by cooking them on the same grill as the regular burgers.

The class action lawsuit accuses the fast food giant of "deceptive" practices - because the "meat-free" patties get covered by grease from the "meat" products during the cooking process.

The consumer wants compensation, and full disclosure that the Whoppers are cooked on the same grill.

Burger King has not yet released a comment on the lawsuit.
