Yo Quiero Taco Bell


MONTGOMERY, Alabama (AP) – A law firm claims in a lawsuit that Taco Bell is using false advertising when it refers to using “seasoned ground beef” or “seasoned beef” in its products.

The meat mixture sold by Taco Bell restaurants contains binders and extenders and does not meet the minimum requirements set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to be labeled as “beef,” according to the legal complaint.

…Attorney Dee Miles said attorneys had Taco Bell’s “meat mixture” tested and found it contained less that 35 percent beef.

…The lawsuit says that Taco Bell’s “seasoned beef” contains other ingredients, including water, wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltodrextrin, anti-dusting agent and modified corn starch.

Key staples in my kitchen, every one.

    Heh, it’s kind of like the old “Grade D but edible” urban legend (concerning food in school cafeterias) come to life.

    And wtf are “wheat oats”?

  2. Donna D. says:

    Better than telling the public its cat or dog!

    As if anyone eating at Taco Bell gives a rat’s ass.

  4. JeffS says:

    I guess Attorney Miles has never eaten at McDonalds, huh?

    “rat’s ass”
    That’s in there, too!

    I knew someone would go there, might as well be you THS.

  7. JeffS says:

    Someone had to, Major Dad. I can think of no one better suited than THS.

    I do not like fast food of any kind. It doesn’t come from snobbery, or health consciousness at all. I just think most of it taste like crap. And I’m not paying for crap. Secondly, I always imagine what nasty-ass shit the workers are doing to it…oh yes, I’ve had lots of friends that worked fast food that told me it’s way more common than not.

    Hey – I *like* anti-dusting agent. If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s a dusty taco.

  10. Gary from Jersey says:

    What are they bitching about? They should be amazed there’s any beef at all. They should be worrying about rat ass futures.

  11. ricki says:

    Here’s what they can do: take a tip from pet food labels. If it has more than a certain percent of fillers, it is referred to as “WITH whatevermeat”

    So: Taco bell original tacos “with” beef. Instead of original beef tacos.

    I’m kinda surprised no one has made a “finding the meat” double entendre joke on here….

    You know this is too high class an operation for that, ricki.

    Plus Sis has been too busy obsessing about rat’s asses.

  13. Gunslinger says:

    Speaking of rat’s asses and Taco Bell, remember this story?

  14. Yojimbo says:

    From Bingley’s Rules of Order & New Civility (unabridged)

    “……Any comments such as ‘finding the meat’ shall be restricted to posts about crossdressing New Jersey political candidates, whenever that pops up again. Failure to observe these standards will be dealt with in a not insignificant manner.”

    I think that deals with the meat of the issue.

  15. tree hugging sister says:

    Excuse me, but it’s RATS’ asses, in the plural, BINGLEY ignoramus (That’s in the Latin).

    I think that deals with the meat of the issue.

  16. Kate P says:

    Oh, well. I “ran for the border” this weekend because they pulled their ads from some horrendous programming on MTV. I survived!

  17. Larry says:

    100% USDA Approved Meat (substitute)!

  18. Ave says:

    Like chicken lips.

  19. Mr. Bingley says:

    We hope it’s just the lips, Ave.

  20. Mr. Bingley says:

    Yojimbo, I thought the issue was there is no meat?

  21. Yojimbo says:

    Yes, no meat, or very little meat was the thrust of the post.
