Taco Bell, the food of choice for college drunks, people who never had real Spanish cuisine, or maybe people planning their suicide. Taco Bell is being sued by a woman from LA, because the “beef,” Taco Bell uses, is actually only 35% Beef. Where’s the beef indeed. As the LA Times points out, “just 35 percent of the taco filling was a solid, and just 15 percent overall was protein, said their attorney” associated with the case. The firm claims this doesn’t confirm to the USDA definition of beef. Technically, on the packaging it’s shipped in, it’s called “Taco Meat Filling.”
But that’s not stated on the menu. Did anyone ever really walk into a Taco Bell and order anything on the menu expecting they were getting 100% Grade A meat? Taco bell prepared a statement where they said, “Taco Bell prides itself on serving semi-high quality shitty Mexican inspired food with great value. We’re happy that the millions of duped customers we serve every week agree, boy they must be high or drunk, but we don’t judge. We deny our advertising is misleading in any way and we intend to vigorously defend the suit.”
The suit was filed Jan. 19 in federal court on behalf of Amanda Obney of California.
