Taco Bell Releases Statement About Lawsuit

In case you haven't been keeping up, Taco Bell is being sued for advertising its taco filling as "beef" even though it only (allegedly) contains 36% real beef.

Taco Bell isn't going to take this lying down and has released a statement regarding the matter.

They say:

"At Taco Bell, we buy our beef from the same trusted brands you find in the supermarket, like Tyson Foods. We start with 100 percent USDA-inspected beef. Then we simmer it in our proprietary blend of seasonings and spices to give our seasoned beef its signature Taco Bell taste and texture. We are proud of the quality of our beef and identify all the seasoning and spice ingredients on our website. Unfortunately, the lawyers in this case elected to sue first and ask questions later — and got their "facts" absolutely wrong. We plan to take legal action for the false statements being made about our food."

Greg Creed
President and Chief Concept Officer
Taco Bell Corp.

It sounds like it still might not all be beef. They say they “start with 100 percent USDA-inspected beef,” but our question is this: What do you end with, Taco Bell?

We would guess it's not all beef.
