Alert: Poisonous Chemical in Veggie Burgers

Didn't you just know something like this would happen?

A new study shows that a large number of popular soy products contain trace amounts of hexane, known to cause nervous system failure and skin disorders in humans.

Brands include regular Boca Burgers, Garden Burgers, Morningstar Farms,Trader Joe's and many more. (BTW: "Nearly every major ingredient in conventional soy-based infant formula is hexane extracted.")

Gothamist has the whole report.
