Yeah, it's not really much to worry about though. Don't let it scare you.

I was very surprised to see Dr Praegers on that list. I am going to research that because that is why I have been buying them. Their product says non GMO so I don't think they have hexane. I think it is odd to say not to worry about it because it is just a small amount of poison, but I guess you could make that argument with non organic fruits and veggies.

I disagree. They even state in your links that they have no idea what is a safe amount. I don't consume a lot of veggie burgers but I think the cumulative effects of this is something to be aware of. No ......one won't kill you but what about 1 a day or every other day over the course of 20 yrs and it can become another thing altogether.
Another reason to buy whole foods organic when possible.
