Taco Bell Responds To Meatgate Accusations

Click to Enlarge

As you may have heard, Taco Bell is under fire for allegedly offering meat filler that’s only 36% meat, rather than the 40% required by the USDA. In the wake of this discovery, Taco Bell released the following statement:


‘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.’

Eh, even if it turns out to be lacking beef, it still tastes the same – which is probably what people care about most.
