Norfolk, Virginia. – While residents of the nation’s capital and much of the northeastern United States are reporting meat allergies after being bitten by a lone star tickPETA rushes to release brand new cookbook to save the day, including for legal thriller author John Grisham, who went on a meatless diet after contracting alpha-gal syndrome, which can cause adverse reactions to ingesting meat, dairy, or any other product from mammals. PETA’s cookbook, available for pre-order hereoffers vegan sausage crackers and gravy sandwiches, Philly cheese steaks and slow cooker Texan chili — and each of the tasty dishes is tick-bite allergy-resistant.

“From beefless stews to pulled barbecue jackfruit, the tasty recipes in PETA’s new cookbook prove you don’t have to be checked by a meat allergy,” says Ingrid Newkirk, president of PETA. “We’re introducing unwitting lone tick blood donors to delicious vegan meals that will make them enjoy every bite.”

Although food animals feel pain and fear just like humans, they endure mutilations like beak trimming, castration and dehorning without even a painkiller and are trucked through all extreme climates, sometimes for hundreds of kilometres, without food or water. In slaughterhouses, workers hang them upside down and slit their throats – sometimes, US Department of Agriculture inspectors report, while they are still conscious. Each person who goes vegan saves the lives of nearly 200 animals every year.

PETA — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” — opposes speciesism, a human supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit or follow the group on Twitter, Facebookor instagram.
