Taco Bell: More bull than beef?
Tuesday, January 25th, 2011
A lawsuit has been filed against Taco Bell stating that the fast food chain is using false advertising when it uses the term “ground beef” or “seasoned ground beef” to refer to its food.
In contention: The “taco meat filling” used by the restaurants only contain about 35% beef with binders, extenders, preservatives, additives and “other agents” making up the other 65%.
Frankly, we think any late night nibbler who has scarfed down a 20-pack could probably tell you that “beef” wasn’t the main reason for their border run. It’s the cheap thrill of using pocket change to pay for a meal.
What’s your take? Bull or beef…and are you really all that shocked and appalled?
