No Quiero Taco Bell?
Beasley Allen law firm out of Montgomery, Alabama has filed a class action lawsuit against Taco Bell claiming the “seasoned ground beef” contains less than 35 percent ground beef with the other 65 percent being made up of filler like isolated oat product, corn starch and a bunch of other stuff I don’t feel like typing out.
I actually have a friend who worked at Taco Bell in the late 90′s and he told me back then that the refried beans were actually chock full of filler…oats in particular. It made sense to me at the time because the refried beans kind of have a texture reminiscent of a thick oatmeal and every time I’ve had a bean burrito since then I think about it. And honestly, it doesn’t bother me at all because I dig the hell out of Taco Bell, especially after a night at the bar – maybe not so much at lunch ’cause, you know, booze makes everything better.
What I’m getting at is that there are a lot worse things that could be in the meat like, for instance, dog or possum. And really, why do you think the stuff’s so cheap? Because it’s chock full of filler to make their product go further and keep their cost down. I doubt this lawsuit will hurt Taco Bell at all, in fact, I’m thinking some Taco Bell sounds pretty good for dinner because, you know, I have a family and I work in radio therefore I am broke and not interested in dropping eight bones on a burrito.
