We all probably saw this coming but Taco Bell's beef is not really beef at all. An Alabama law firm is filing a class action law suit again Taco Bell, claiming that the "beef" they serve only contains 36% beef and the restaurant is therefore misleading customers.
The rest of the beef is actually made of wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltodextrin, anti-dusting agent, autolyzed yeast extract, modified corn starch, sodium phosphates, and other non-meat "extenders".
Yesterday Taco Bell released this statement:
"Taco Bell prides itself in serving high quality Mexican inspired food with great value. We deny our advertising is misleading in any way and we intend to vigorously defend the suit."
Here's what we recommend: Don't eat Taco Bell! There are very few low calorie options on the menu and its clear that there's no telling what the food your eating is made of. Go for fresher, low calorie options elsewhere!
