Check out the companies making headlines after the bell:
Beyond Meat fell 4.52% toward the end of extended trading after news that a consumer group, the Center for Consumer Freedom, launched an ad campaign alleging many plant-based meat products could include traces of toxic chemicals. Breanne Kincaid, the center's research director, told CNBC's "Fast Money" Thursday that some plant-based meat products are exposed to a chemical called Hexane when it is being processed. The group doesn't know if the chemical is used in Beyond Meat's product.
Beyond Meat declined to comment on the campaign. The company is in a mandatory quiet period prior to their quarterly report. The Federal Drug Administration allows Hexane to be present in food under certain conditions.
