From reading the article it appears that it's nothing more than an allergic reaction. You'd be amazed how many people have problems with peanuts, for example. Do CSPI think peanuts should be banned too?
All variants of Quorn I've seen here in Sweden contains egg, which I'm allergic to. Thus I haven't tried it myself, but pretty much all my friends are either vegetarians or vegans and the amount of meat substitute and various fungi and soy products we've tried between us is rather enormous now. I have only had a reaction to a single one and that was because they had forgotten to list egg as an ingredient. I don't think any of my friends have ever had a problem of this kind.
The statement that some study showed "nearly 10 percent of people who ate Quorn reported feeling nauseated or sick" is to be taken with a fairly large grain of salt, methinks. CSPI seems to be waging a war on quorn for some unknown reason. Are they by any chance sponsored by someone with connections to the meat industry? I know that happened once here in Sweden, pretty much the same scenario.
And I can't believe I wrote all this in a comment thread on a gaming news site. I need a life.
