Yo Quiero Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
From The Street
Taco Bell came under scrutiny after a class-action lawsuit was filed against it on Jan. 19, alleging that the Mexican-style fast-food chain does not put enough real beef in its tacos to accurately call the filling beef. The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines beef as "flesh of cattle."
The suit claims that Taco Bell says its products contain, "seasoned ground beef or seasoned beef, when in fact a substantial amount of the filling contains substances other than beef."
The suit said Taco Bell's ground beef includes ingredients such as water, isolated oat product, an anti-dusting agent, an anti-caking agent and modified corn starch, as well as beef and seasonings.
