The ‘bake me’ burger is not safe for work, the company behind the fast food item says.
Bacon, egg, bacon, egg … and a fried egg.
That’s the gist of a statement by the bacon-flavored Shake Shack brand, which released the statement Wednesday in response to the Food and Drug Administration’s announcement that it had approved a “bacon” flavor.
BakeMeBurger, a company that sells shakes and burgers that have a bacon flavor, released a statement to Food & Drug Administration officials Tuesday.
It’s not safe to serve this product to anyone, the statement reads.
The FDA says there are no safety concerns regarding the use of the bacon flavor.
Shake Shack says it is “aware of the FDA announcement” but will not be able to provide information to the public until after the FDA’s decision.
Bakery chains, which sell products with bacon and eggs, have long battled FDA approval concerns.
They have argued that their products don’t contain any artificial ingredients or flavors and that they are safe.
The FDA’s announcement came after the company received more than 30,000 comments from people in favor of allowing the Bacon Shake.
Many of the comments were negative, including those from people who said they did not want to eat food at all.
In response, Bacon Shakes released a video, calling for people to not feel pressured to eat the Bacon Burger at all and that consumers should “trust the Bacon.”
