Quorn to change labels to reveal its main ingredient is MOLD: Meat substitute brand will add allergy warning after ‘two deaths and thousands of allergic reactions’

Quorn will have to carry prominent labels in the US identifying it as a ‘mold’ with a risk of causing allergic reactions.

The change follows legal action and pressure from an American campaign group which alleges the death of two children may have been the result of eating the meat substitute product.

In the past, its marketing has suggested Quorn has similarities to mushrooms, truffles, and morels.

However, the product has been at the center of a long-running controversy in the US where the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has tried and failed to get it banned.
