Get prepared for wet, cold weather in the valley

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Say goodbye to the 70s after today! A big change in our weather pattern for southern Nevada will bring much chillier temperatures to the desert and the chance for heavy rain and mountain snow.

Lawsuit against Burger King over ‘Impossible Whopper’ claims its contaminated by meat

WASHINGTON (CNN) — A vegan has filed a lawsuit against Burger King over its “Impossible Whopper” claiming it’s falsely promoted as meat-free.

The proposed class action lawsuit says they’re cooked on the same grill as regular burgers, so they’re contaminated with meat by-products.

The suit was filed by Philip Williams on behalf of other vegans. It accuses Burger King of deceptive practices by not disclosing they’re cooked on the same grill.

He says he wouldn’t have paid a premium price for one at an Atlanta Burger King if he’d known.

Burger King’s online menu says the impossible whopper is “zero percent beef” and says “for guests looking for a meat-free option, a non-broiler method of preparation is available upon request.”

The suit seeks compensation for everyone who bought the burger — and for Burger King to clearly disclose on the menu that they use the same grill for all burgers... Read More
