Nah, haven't seen them. Got egg and milk in them, not even sure the eggs are free range. The fungus they make it out of also looks pretty disturbing when you see how they cultivate it in massive warehouses, but prob not that different from other fungi.

been hearing some questionable stuff for years about this and it does contain msg via the autolyzed yeast extract, apparently...

Quorn is the brand name of meat substitutes that are made from a vat-grown fungus. Some people have dangerous allergic reactions to the fungus and suffer nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and occasionally hives or difficulty breathing. Some people react the first time they eat Quorn, while some react only after building up a sensitivity.

Medical studies have proven that Quorn's fungal ingredient is an allergen, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the United Kingdom's Food Standards Agency still allow its sale. The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a non-profit food-safety organization based in Washington, D.C., has heard from more than 600 consumers in Europe and the United States who have suffered reactions to Quorn.

Despite what some of the manufacturer's (Marlow Foods) marketing materials indicate, the fungus used in Quorn is only distantly related to mushrooms, truffles, or morels. While all are members of the fungus kingdom, Quorn is made from a less appetizing fungus (or mold) called Fusarium venenatum.

CSPI urges consumers to avoid Quorn and urges natural-foods retailers like Whole Foods not to sell this product that is dangerous to sensitive individuals. Consumers who have experienced adverse reactions to Quorn may report them here.

Its been a while, but i remember eating this stuff in the UK when i had just gone vegetarian ( it was fucking tasty) and doing a bit of research into ingrediants before turning vegan. I vividly recall there was a bit of an expose on these dudes and the mould the used as its main ingredient (they prefer to call it a "mushroom") and it being fairly intolerable and not really intended for human consumption. It's probably "safe" in sofar as it's not going to kill anyone or anything but i believe the general view of most vegetarian societies over there was that the main ingredient was to be avoided in anything other than fairly small quantities.

More evidence that meat is a cofactor for activation of the "sense of humour" gene.

Sarah Palin's recent comedy stylings might contradict that, somewhat...

The Coles near my joint has pretty much all the Quorn line for $2.99 at the moment, stocked up.

These are the business;

Those crumbed mushrooms in the above picture (not quorn) rule

Also, According to the wiki article:

In late 2011, Quorn released their first vegan product, called the Quorn Vegan Burger,[40] available initially only in the US. Following strong sales of the product and increasing demand from the UK market, Quorn Foods UK Marketing Director Chris Wragg announced that they are now developing & testing a line of vegan products for the UK market. Quorn are also actively reducing its use of eggs overall, using 3.5 million fewer eggs since 2010.[41]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quorn

So the vegans may get a vegan version eventually.
