The product in question is a frozen package of Vigan longganisa sold at 99 Ranch Supermarket.

Earlier, Ms. Taka posted the following comment on her Instagram account:

Vigan is, in fact, a city in Ilocos Sur province in Northern Philippines. Vigan longganisa is a popular delicacy in this historic city that has been designated a United Nations (UNESCO) World Heritage Centre.

Ms. Taka mistakenly assumed that the package label contained a typographical error and that she was buying a vegan sausage.

She is suing 99 Ranch Market for a undisclosed amount, citing emotional and physical distress and violation of her sacred lifestyle.
