As the video says, do NOT try any of this at home.

The folks at Moe's Southwest Grill wanted to demostrate how nuking your food in a microwave is no fun.

So, they decided to stick fruit, aluminum foil, Capri-Suns, and even a bottle of champagne into a microwave and watch it ruined…

Taco Bell Beef Lawsuit Withdrawn

Filed under: Legal MattersFast Food

Taco Bell Lawsuit dropped

The Alabama-based law firm that filed a class-action lawsuit against Taco Bell's "beef" in January has withdrawn their case.

The law firm claimed that the "beef" they serve only contains 36% ACTUAL beef and the restaurant is therefore misleading customers.

However, the plaintiffs have reportedly withdrawn the lawsuit after Taco Bell made changes to its marketing and product disclosure.

An attorney form the firm said:

"From the inception of this case, we stated that if Taco Bell would make certain changes regarding disclosure and marketing of its `seasoned beef' product, the case could be dismissed."

Taco Bell seems pretty proud of their victory and at one point, actually THANKED the law firm for suing them by launching an aggressive marketing strategy to fight the "false claims" and prove the quality of their meat.

After the suit was withdrawn, Taco Bell CEO Greg Creed said in an interview:

"This sets the record straight about the high quality of our seasoned beef and the integrity of our advertising. We took great exception to the false claims made about our seasoned beef and wish the attorneys had contacted us before filing and publicizing a lawsuit that disparaged our brand."

But that would ruin the element of surprise! Ha!

It looks like everything may be cleared up, however, in the statement "thanking" the accusers, the company did say:

"We take any claims to the contrary very seriously and plan to take legal action against those who have made false claims against our seasoned beef."

Will Taco Bell file a countersuit for profits lost due to the brand disparagement?

Regardless of any lawsuits, claims, or beef percentages thrown out by both parties, we still recommend going just about anywhere else for any Mexican dishes.

Taco Bell is quick and cheap, but it's not exactly authentic. If you've never tasted REAL Mexican food, you're definitely missing out!

Increased Taco Bell Prices Spurs Shootout

Increased Taco Bell Prices Spurs Shootout

Don’t mess with someone who wants a cheap taco!

A man in Texas became upset when he found out the price of the Beefy Crunch Burrito had risen $.50 to $1.49.

After ordering seven of them and seeing his receipt he became angry and pulled out a BB gun, firing at the cashier before running out to the parking lot.

The police chased him down, and he then shot at them with an assault rifle he had in his car — shattering the cops’ windshield.

After hiding in a hotel room and forcing the cops to bring in a SWAT team for a standoff, he finally surrendered and is facing numerous charges.

WTF.

That’s all we have to say about this… WTF.

Taco Bell Releases Statement About Lawsuit And The Quality Of Their Beef

Filed under: Fast Food

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.
