A Food Truck Apologizes After Selling Meat at Vegan Festival!

If you're vegan and decide to go to a vegan food festival, you would think it would be safe to assume there will be no meat served.

Well that wasn't exactly the case at Vegandale Food Drink Festival!

The owner of a food truck has apologized after serving meat to some customers at a vegan food festival!!

Mi Patio Cafe & Grill admitted on its Facebook page (now taken down) that they sold animal products at Vegandale Food Drink Festival in Houston.

The social media post said, "our truck normally doesn't cater to vegans and we wanted to take a chance and participate in something new."

They continued, "we didn't know what to expect and did a couple of our core items handmade with no milk, cheese, butter, mayo, and no meat.

They also said, "we got a couple of pre-made packets from the grocery store H-E-B to match what is meat to vegans. We were wrong to assume anything, and the first couple of people received those pre-made packets of meat and that was it."

The business owner has blamed miscommunication for the issue, saying the event organizers did not explain what foods could and could not be sold ahead of the event. 

Speaking to Chron.com, she added, "I've never been to a vegan festival. I already apologized. I didn't expect to offend anybody."

A Statement on Vegandales' Facebook page said, "Vendors are strictly prohibited from selling anything that isn't vegan.

"So when our team was made aware of the incident into the Houston event, we made sure the vendor ceased sales of animal products immediately.

"Our terms and conditions of participation strictly forbid animal products so we were as disappointing as our guests for this blatant deception."

How crazy is this?!

What do you think of the situation?
