|Taco Bell - Meat or Mystery?|
It's not rocket science that while scarfing down Taco Bell, you probably shouldn't ponder exactly what's in that burrito, but a law firm in Montgomery, Alabama, has done just that. The law firm of Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methyin, Portis & Miles has started a class-action lawsuit against Taco Bell, claiming that the beef in Taco Bell products is more "mystery" than "meat." The suit claims that Taco Bell's "meat" contains fillers, water, corn starch, and other nasty bits that are not supposed to be in ground beef.
The USDA definition of "ground beef" states that the beef must consist of "chopped fresh and/or frozen beef with or without seasoning and should not contain more than 30 percent fat and shall not contain added water, phosphates, binders, or extenders." By this definition, Taco Bell might not be playing by the rules.
