We all saw this coming — Taco Bell's "beef" is pretty much not beef at all.
An Alabama law firm is filing a class action suit against Taco Bell, claiming that the "beef" they serve only contains 36% beef, and the restaurant is therefore misleading customers.
The rest of the “beef” is actually made of wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltodextrin, anti-dusting agent, autolyzed yeast extract, modified corn starch, sodium phosphates, and other non-meat “extenders.”
Taco Bell issued this statement yesterday:
“Taco Bell prides itself on serving high quality Mexican inspired food with great value…. We deny our advertising is misleading in any way and we intend to vigorously defend the suit.”
Here’s what we recommend: Don’t eat at Taco Bell!! There are very few low-calorie options on the menu, and it’s clear that there’s no telling what the food you're eating is made of. Go for fresher, low-calorie options elsewhere!
