Chipotle recently introduced a vegan faux-meat option at two of its locations. This week, after receiving customer complaints over grilling practices at one store, the chain confirmed that it has altered its cooking methods. The plant-based alternative was added to the Chelsea location in New York City less than one month ago, and while Chipotle representatives say that feedback has been positive, some consumers cried foul upon seeing it cooked on the same grill as meat products. A Chipotle representative confirmed that this practice has been changed, and that its meat-free protein is now cooked in a separate pan with vegan-friendly fajita veggies.
