More FDA failures: fungal meat substitute Quorn

Has anyone tried "Quorn mycoprotein" a new meat substitute made from fungus? An AP story (see link) claims that it's making people sick, tho' the FDA has categorized it as "Generally recognized as safe."

And labelling it as "in the mushroom family" would be rather like listing rat meat as "in the cattle family" since both are mammals.
