“Meat Filling” Lawsuit

Wow, so I don’t feel like going to Taco Bell any time soon.

Have you seen the new lawsuit that contends their “beef” is actually “taco meat filling” and that their ground beef “seasonings” are really “extenders”?

Check out: “Taco Bell meat? Beef, says firm. Filling, says suit.

Key quote:

“In reality, a substantial majority of the filling is comprised of substances other than beef,” the lawsuit alleges. And those seasonings?

“Those ingredients are not added for flavor, but rather to increase the volume of the product,” the suit charges. “These ingredients are binders and extenders such as ‘isolated oat product.’ “

For future reference, “taco meat filling”, according to the USDA, must contain at least 40 percent fresh meat.

Gah!

Nope, I don’t feel like going to Taco Bell any time soon.
