University of Georgia Cafeteria Feeds Animal Products to Vegans

The University of Georgia’s dining hall has been serving up “vegan” food that contains animal products. I’m all for giving people the benefit of the doubt, but some of the dining service statements in this article come off as totally lame excuses. And then there’s this insanity, from the university’s food services dietician:

With the recession, a lot of vegan companies don’t [make vegan products] anymore…It’s not profitable.

Huh?!? The market for vegan foods has been growing by leaps and bounds for years now. For instance, look at the growth of companies like Veggie Grill and Daiya Foods.

Food products come and go, and it should be the dining hall’s job to stay on top of these changes. The university should have had a system in place by which, any time a food product changed, they’d check the new ingredients to verify its vegan status. What they allowed to happen was inexcusable.
