UK: Burger Kings gets green seal of approval from Vegetarian Society
Burger King , dubbed Murder King for the alleged cruelty at its meat suppliers by activists at PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), has become the first fastfood chain to be endorsed by the UK's Vegetarian Society .
