Here’s Jeff bringing up the story of a California lady suing Taco Bell.

A lady in California is suing Taco Bell on false advertising claims when they market their beef tacos as being made of beef.  According to Reuters, the says that the company is using only 35% beef in their tacos whereas the USDA regulation sets the limit for “beef” at 40%. Taco Bell says the suit is nonsense, and they plan to launch a counter suit against the woman for talkin’ smack on their taco meat filling (which is what they call the “seasoned beef” within the company). Here’s an actual list of ingredients of taco meat filling:

Water
Ground Goat Meat
Salt
Maltodextrin
Microwaved Beef Product

(You can find the actual list here.)

An ex manager for Taco Bell called in and told us some cost saving tricks of the trade.

What do you think? Does this lawsuit have any meat to it? Let us know in the comments or on the Jeff and Jeremy Facebook page.

  1. This is 100% true. I know first hand someone with a goat farm. His only purchaser is Taco Bell. We have alot of extra land that all we did was mow and almost decided to raise goats on it for taco bell also.

    Taco Bell has a goat rendering plant up around chicago that farmers truck the goats to where they are processed into “beef blend”.

    There is nothing wrong with eating goat. It has been done for centuries, Its lean, it tastes fine, nutritious.

    But Taco-Bell needs to stop lying about it.
