Morningstar Farms has long been a provider of vegetarian and vegan food products that offer healthier, non-meat protein sources for vegetarians, vegans and flexitarians, as well as meat eaters. As a vegan, there are many Morningstar Farms products that I do not eat, but there are several vegan options that are always in my freezer. Until recently, a handy package of Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Steak Strips was one of them.
Morningstar Farms was acquired by the Kellogg Company, which subsequently discontinued Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Steak Strips. The product is no longer listed on the Morningstar Farms website and is not listed as part of the Morningstar Farms line on the Kellogg’s website; however, there are still recipes that call for these vegan steak strips on the Morningstar Farms site for those of you who may still have some steak strips in your freezer.
A phone call to the Consumer Affairs line at the Kellogg Company confirmed that Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Steak Strips were discontinued due to lack of performance, a statement that is also reflected in a report from another customer who contacted the Kellogg Company about these vegan steak strips and included the information in a comment left on my previous article on this product.
I reviewed these tasty, easy to prepare vegan “steak” strips in a September, 2008 article, Vegan Product Review: Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Steak Strips, so if you would like to read more about Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Steak Strips, please visit that link.
