Federal Court Blocks ‘Veggie Burger’ Censorship Law

A federal court today blocked the state of Arkansas from enforcing its meat label censorship law against The Tofurky Company. The law makes it illegal for companies to use words like “burger,” “sausage,” and “roast” to describe products that are not made from animals, such as veggie burgers, even if modified by qualifiers such as “vegan,” “veggie,” or “plant-based.” Violations of the law would carry fines of up to $1,000 for each individual label.
