Burger King signs warn about carcinogen

This article was taken from the Miami herald from November 20, 2008. Its more like a public service announcement. However, because of the severity & nature of the story I felt the need to repost it in its entirety. Sometimes you have to let your conscience be your guide—and when it comes to health & quality of life everyone deserves to at least be warned. So, that way we the consumer can make an informed decision.

Moreover, health related issues impact all communities, although the proportion is much higher for people of color. With this in mind, if any segment of the American population positively impacted with knowledge acquired, then applied which is power—-than my job will be complete. My only intent is to spread information—and let the mantra of “each one, teach one, so that we can save one” resound & resonate with humanity altruistically…

However, on another note, what is spuriously absent are the names of the other restaurants or fast food chains that are also cited in this lawsuit. If anyone knows please let me know…..

For anything less on my behalf would be uncivilized!

“To whom much is given, much is Expected!”

“Burger King‘s California restaurants now display signs warning consumers that its grilled chicken items contains a dangerous carcinogen.

The warning signs were part of a settlement of a lawsuit against Burger King and six other national restaurant chains in January by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Burger King is the first of the chains to settle.

The suit charged the chains with knowingly exposing customers to PhIP, a cancer-causing compound, without warnings about the risk. PhIP is produced when meats are cooked at high temperatures. Chicken products are the leading contributor of this chemical in the American diet.”
