    Taco Bell's Grade F Beef - Some Beef, Mostly Filler

    http://aquapour.com/taco-bell-beef-i...n-suit/555396/
    Unless you are a chemist, Taco Bell’s “taco meat filling” really is “mystery meat.” At least that’s what Amanda Obney alleges in her class action suite against the franchise giant.

    Obney, who is not seeking monetary damages, says Taco Bell’s use of the word “beef” constitutes false advertising.

    The suit was filed by the law firm of Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles of Montgomery, Alabama. W. Daniel “Dee” Miles III, who spoke in behalf of the firm, said, “You can’t call it beef by definition, it’s junk. I wouldn’t eat it.”

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines “beef,” surprisingly enough, as “the flesh of cattle.”

    “Taco Bell’s definition of ‘seasoned beef’ does not conform to consumers’ reasonable expectation or ordinary meaning of seasoned beef, which is beef and seasonings,” the suit says.

    The suit alleges that the “taco meat filling” and “seasoned beef” is in reality 65 percent fillers and chemicals. Attorney Miles said that only 35 percent was solid, and only 15 percent was protein.

    The Associated Press reported the filler was made of binders, extenders, and “water, wheat, oats, soy lecithin, maltodrextrin, anti-dusting agent and modified corn starch.”

    The time I threw up when I ate taco bell makes sense! It also makes sense why I never went there again! :O

    Yea saw this on Colbert.

    I don't really care since most fast food is sh*t no matter where you go, I eat it for convenience not fine dining.

    lol taco bell. I rarely eat beef at all anymore, the few times I have it is if I feel like having a burger, happens 3-4 times a month. I still like their 99c chicken burrito tho, but i eat it very ocassionaly. I practically only eat chicken >_>
