    Beyond Meat Gets More Bad News: Leaked Docs Reveal What’s Been Found in Product, Horrid Conditions

    Published on

    One of the largest synthetic meat manufacturers’ food processing facility is teeming with bacteria and in breach of food safety regulations.

    Internal documents and images from the metro Philadelphia Beyond Meat plant offer a picture of hazardous conditions that could have an impact on customers.

    Whistleblowers at the company provided the evidence, and Bloomberg published the results in an article on Monday.

    According to a food safety lawyer consulted by Bloomberg, the plant’s conditions were extremely unsanitary.

    Bill Marler, an attorney, said of the plant, “If neat and tidy is one and filthy is 10, I’d put this at an eight.”

    “Mold growth takes a while — that underscores a lack of cleanliness.”

    Photos purporting to be from the imitation meat factory, which is 45 minutes on the Pennsylvania Turnpike from Philadelphia, show mildew growing on the walls as well as dirty food preparation containers.

    According to data obtained by Bloomberg, the facility has discovered plant-based “meats” contaminated with the pathogen Listeria at least 11 times since the second half of 2021.

    According to the Food and Drug Administration, food-borne pathogenic bacteria poses substantial health hazards to expectant mothers and can make those who eat it ill.

    Since the public business acquired the plant, the FDA has not yet performed a safety inspection of Beyond Meat’s Pennsylvania facility, according to Bloomberg.

    Additionally, according to internal plant documentation, Beyond Meat items developed at the facility featured inorganic components including wood, string, and metal inside of them.

    Despite this, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture praised Beyond Meat’s food safety procedures in reports that followed plant visits in March and September, according to Bloomberg, finding “no instances of nonconformance with laws.”

    When questioned by Bloomberg about the records and images, Beyond Meat opted not to respond.

    The business creates vegan goods that resemble sausages, hamburger patties, and other common meats.

    The market for the chemically created meat substitutes has not materialized as investors had hoped, which has worsened the economic prospects for the faux meat sector in 2022.

    The environmental advantages of artificial meat over the animal products that people have ingested for thousands of years are cited by its proponents.
