Taco Bell Gets Sued

An Alabama law firm has filed a lawsuit against Taco Bell, claiming that the chain's ground beef contains little meat.

According to Beasley Allen, an Alabama law firm, Taco Bell’s beef filling does not meet the U.S. Department of Agricultures (USDA) definition of the word. The USDA requires taco meat filling to contain a minimum of 40 percent fresh meat, but according to Beasley Allen, the fast-food chain’s filling is only 36 percent actual cows' meat. The rest of the filling is made of soy lecithin, maltodextrin, wheat oats, anti-dusting agent, sodium phosphates, and other non-meat “extenders.” The law firm is filing a class-action lawsuit objecting to these ingredients. Taco Bell denies the allegations and states that it will “vigorously defend the suit.”
