    The vegans I've known were either overweight from eating too many carbs, or very thin because they eat a lot of varied greens and legumes.
    Keto = I was to be "skinny-fat."

    Beyond Disgusting: Former Beyond Meat Employee Shares Photos, Docs, That Appear To Show Mold, Dirty Conditions

    So much for skipping out on meat to get healthier...


    One of Beyond Meat's "key" factories was "reportedly riddled with mold, bacteria and other health-related concerns", the NY Post reported this week, citing evidence that was obtained from a former employee.


    Leaked internal documents showed that the plant "tested positive for the harmful bacteria Listeria at least 11 times in the second half of 2021". Both photographs and documents were provided by the former employee, who said they were "worried" about the conditions at the plant.



    Two other workers at the plant, which is located about an hour from Philadelphia, confirmed that Listeria had been found on the site.


    Additional documents showed that contaminants like "string, metal, wood and plastic" had all been found in products that were produced at the plant as recently as last December.


    Photographs posted by Bloomberg, who produced the original report, appear to show dirty conditions and mold. Bill Marler, a food-safety attorney, after viewing some of the photos, told Bloomberg: “Mold growth takes a while — that underscores a lack of cleanliness.”



    The company pushed back on the claims, however, telling Bloomberg that two inspections this year by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture had “found no instances of nonconformance with regulations.”


    But one spokesperson from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture said that one of those two visits, performed in September, wasn't a "complete plant inspection". Instead, they called it an "effort to address an unpaid registration fee, which has since been paid."


    The spokesperson said that the company's standards “go above and beyond industry and regulatory standards”.


    “External third-party audits, including our most recent third-party audit in May 2022, gave the plant the highest-possible rating in each of the last three years,” the company concluded.


    So, who are you we to believe - the company, or our own lyin' eyes?

    Yeah, that's what I've read. Interest peaked and then dropped dramatically.

    If you look at volume of food, switch veggies with meat/dairy. (Discounting the people who claim they don't like veggies- they are eating largely junk food anyway.)
    If you don't have serious autoimmune issues I don't see the value in a meat only diet. It's expensive and you have to plan things out just like a vegan. Have their been any long term studies on meat only diets? I'm not sure. It's a fairly recent fad diet.

    Yikes. Listeria 11 times in half a year? How is that even possible?
