On December 3, 2012, Quorn Foods Inc. commented on an Examiner article by Rachael Moshman, regarding notable vegetarian celebrities skipping turkey this year and serving other vegetarian recipes.
According to the Examiner article, celebrities like Paul McCartney, Alicia Silverstone, Carrie Underwood, Russell Brand, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman, Woody Harrelson, and Jessica Chastain, will be skipping the turkey on Thanksgiving and turning to healthier vegetarian options. The article states that Alicia Silverstone admitted she will be “preparing a variety of vegan dishes.” The article mentioned that Silverstone, along with Ellen DeGeneres are involved the “adopt a turkey” program, where they urge people to adopt a turkey instead of cook one.
According to the article, “Anne Hathaway and Natalie Portman both served fully vegan menus at their weddings. There is no doubt they’ll be skipping turkeys on Thanksgiving.” The article states that Russell Brand and Carrie Underwood have been skipping the Turkey and eating vegetarian recipes since they were 14 and 13 years old.
