Posted June 05, 2020 03:20:13Some restaurants have been forced to close and others have moved to new locations because of the growing trend of people buying ketchup at a fast-food restaurant, the Washington Post reported.
The restaurant chain, Burger King, had previously faced protests and boycotts after its ketchup was sold in a grocery store in the city.
The Washington Post wrote that a new ketchup law would allow customers to buy their ketchup outside a fast food restaurant.
Ketchup has been a controversial issue in the United States for years.
A recent study found that nearly half of Americans had never even tasted a ketchup, and many people would rather not eat ketchup because it is unhealthy and tastes too sweet.
A few states have banned ketchup in the past, including New York, Vermont, California, Washington, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts and Maine.
In the United Kingdom, the country’s second-largest economy, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has ruled that ketchup can no longer be served at a chain of fast food restaurants in the UK.
According to the Guardian, the FSA said that the company, Sainsbury’s, could no longer sell ketchup on its shelves because the “service element” of the product is no longer permitted in the food chain.
The FSA said it was concerned that some consumers were buying ketchups in supermarkets.
The company has not responded to The Guardian’s request for comment.
In Canada, the Department of Agriculture (DA) has issued a ban on ketchup sales at McDonald’s, Burger Kings, Pizza Hut and Subway, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reported.
In June, the British Columbia government passed legislation to ban the sale of ketchup products in public places.
“It’s a shame that McDonald’s and Burger King can’t serve ketchup,” Vancouver resident Michelle Hagg told CBC News.
“The ketchup is just disgusting.”
More than one million people have signed a petition calling on the government to remove the ketchup ban in Canada.
