Taco Bell Faces False Advertising Lawsuit Over "Seasoned Beef"

Do You Order Meat When Eating Fast Food?

Do you have beef with Taco Bell? At least one California woman does, as she's brought a false-advertising lawsuit against the fast food chain, objecting to the restaurant's claims to serve "seasoned beef."

According to legal documents, the product contains only about 15 percent protein; the rest consists of water, isolated oat product, wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltodextrin, anti-dusting agent, autolyzed yeast extract, modified corn starch, and sodium phosphate. Holy cow!

Parent company Yum Brands responded by saying, "Taco Bell prides itself on serving high quality Mexican inspired food with great value." They've defended their USDA-inspected beef and have insinuated plans to countersue. Do you take offense to the meat at Taco Bell and other fast food restaurants? Or will you gladly accept it as inexpensive greasy goodness?
