Burger King Alert of Cancer-Causing Chemical in Grilled Chicken

Burger King settled the lawsuit filed by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) by agreeing to warn customers that its grilled chicken entrées contain PhIP, one of a group of carcinogenic compounds called heterocyclic amines that are produced when meats are cooked at high temperatures, as in grilling or barbecuing.

PCRM had filed the lawsuit in 2008 against Burger King, along with McDonald's, Chick-fil-A, Applebee’s, Outback Steakhouse, Chili’s Grill and Bar Restaurant, and T.G.I. Friday’s in January 2008 for knowingly exposing their customers to PhIP without warning them of its risks.
