Health: Bad Crop Of Quorn?

Could this health food make you sick? Quorn, a meat substitute available since January, has been a hit thanks to its real-meat texture and excellent nutritional profile (high in protein and fiber, low in saturated fat). But last week the Center for Science in the Public Interest asked the FDA to ban it, claiming it's made dozens of Americans ill--like Laura Hubbard, 22, who vomited five times and was taken to the hospital. Should you worry? Probably not. More people get sick from peanuts than from Quorn, which has been sold in Britain for 17 years. Just try to forget that it's made from a moldlike fungus. That'd turn anyone's stomach.
