The Government has today proposed an opt-in system for vegetarian shoppers who wish to log on to supermarket sites and see explicit images of Quorn.
‘Children should be protected from the ‘Quornification’ of everyday life,’ said a spokesperson for an educational charity. ‘Those little stubby cocktail sausages may look and taste like the real thing, but they totally misrepresent reality.’
Campaigners believe that children should only learn what constitutes a toad-in-the-hole when they are ready.
‘All too often, experience of online Quorn means when they reach adulthood and are faced with their first real pork sausage, they don’t know what to do. We need a total ban on hardcore Quorn, and a debate with society’s steak holders. All too often, our society treats meat as, well, pieces of meat.’
