Aparently there's no "legal" beef in Taco Bell's tacos

News Linky

It seems the stuff inside the tacos does not meet the legal definition of beef and Taco Bell is being sued for "false advertising".

Less than 35% of the stuff is actual beef, the article says.

What's wrong with wheat flour and soy protein?

It's not like they're making it out of roadkill or something. The wheat and soy is probably healthier, safer, and more humane.

I think it's a move to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

I thought those were caused by the refried beans.

I'm curious as to the beef content in JITB tacos. Seems like there's no real beef in them.

That's why Jack In The Box tacos are always better. Especially after midnight.

It would rate as a poor grade of dog food.

It was pretty scary back in the day when JITB packaging had the Ralston Purina checkerboard logo on it.

Might want to get to know someone before you make those accusations.

When you have a car load of kids celebrating a team win and they are hungry, it's the only fast food place open that late.

To some of us, accusing others of being high isn't exactly an insult

I don't suppose they would taste as good as regular fatty soy grits.

I don't see anything there not to like.

Maybe they should rename it to BEEPH. You know, like KRAB.

I find comments about Dog food grade meat laughable. Pet food goes through as many or more inspections than human food does. You think they're going to risk someone's muffins dying because of contaminated meat?

Do you really think the meat in taco bell food is really any worse than what you eat in a tv dinner, pepperoni, salami, hot dogs? Meat, by definition, is any edible tissue obtained from an animal. Trust me, you've eaten far worse than what can be found in taco bell beef.

Taco Bell holds the claims are false and are looking into legal action against those making the claims. Sounds to me like we're probably ok to sit back down and enjoy that oh-so-tasty nacho cheese chalupa.

Except for that whole thing with the melamine-contaminated animal feed from China a while back.

Totally agree with the rest of your comment, though.
