Wendy’s is changing its new garden veggie pita sandwiches after a vegetarian group raised a beef over its ingredients.
The Vegetarian Awareness Network said Tuesday the fast-food chain misrepresented its new product in nutritional guides available at its restaurants.
The group said the veggie pita is described as “vegetarian” and “all vegetable” even though the dressing contains gelatin, which comes from animal tissue.
Wendy’s International Inc., which operates 1,500 restaurants worldwide, plans to remove all gelatin from the dressing and should have it in restaurants within two months, spokeswoman Rebecca Lusk said Tuesday.
