Taco Bell Being Sued For False Advertising Because Their 'Ground Beef' Is Actually Only 35% Ground Beef (The Rest Is Cockroaches)

January 25, 2011


A group of Alabamians have filed a class-action lawsuit (which was probably presented to them as a petition to lower the distance of legal marriages from 2nd cousins to 1st. Just kidding -- you can already marry first cousins in more than half the states!) against diarrhea-giant Taco Bell for false advertising 'seasoned ground beef' that is, in fact, only 35% ground beef and the rest puckered pig @$$holes. You know, or "water, wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltodrextrin, anti-dusting agent and modified corn starch." Whoa whoa whoa -- modified corn starch?! THE LADY IN THE DRIVE-THRU SWORE IT WAS UNMODIFIED!

The meat mixture sold by Taco Bell restaurants contains binders and extenders and does not meet the minimum requirements set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to be labeled as "beef," according to the legal complaint.

Attorney Dee Miles said attorneys had Taco Bell's "meat mixture" tested and found it contained less that 35 percent beef.

The lawsuit on behalf of Taco Bell customer and California resident Amanda Obney does not seek monetary damages, but asks the court to order Taco Bell to be honest in its advertising.

HA, LIKE ANYBODY THOUGHT THAT SHIT WAS ACTUAL GROUND BEEF IN THE FIRST PLACE! "Uh GW, this is Alabama we're talking about." Touché But seriously, I lived in Huntsville, Alabama for 10 years and lemme tell you: my sister never looked so good. (I don't actually have a sister, otherwise I'd be choking to death on my own vomit right now).

Thanks to killerabbit and Brittany, who agree a Cheesy Gordita Crunch and Baja Blast is where it's at. Where WHAT'S at exactly -- painful gas?
