Arkansas Bans Use Of Companies Using The Phrase "Veggie Burger"

Arkansas has become the latest state to stop companies from using the phrase "veggie burger" in a play to help the animal agriculture industry. Veggie burgers have become a craze in 2019 with companies like Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat having their products available at both grocery stores and restaurants alike. Well to keep the meat producers safe, Arkansas legislation passed such a bill because "technically" it can't be a burger if there isn't any meat in it. The funny thing about this, the meat industry hasn't taken a hit. There is no decline in demand for practical burgers, sausage, etc. like the industry is claiming. More info, via Vox, below.
