Taco Bell Meat

Taco Bell Meat, Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles, PC has filed a complaint with consumer rights class action against Taco Bell Corporation. The lawsuit challenges the practice of Taco Bell’s representation to consumers that its restaurants serve “beef flavored” or “beef flavored” filling its products, when in fact, a substantial amount of the filling contains substances other than beef. The lawsuit seeks to require Taco Bell to do well in advertising and labeling of food products, and engage in a corrective advertising campaign to educate the public about the actual content of its food.
According to standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the meat filling in the products Taco Bell does not meet the requirement of minimum standard to be labeled and advertised as “beef”, seasoned or otherwise. The vast majority of the lining is composed of substances other than beef, and must be labeled and advertised as a “deposit of taco meat.” Taco meat filling contains added ingredients to increase the volume of the product, such as binders and extenders as “isolated oat product.”
“Our government, USDA and FDA, provides definitions, standards and labeling guidelines for ‘ground beef. What is Taco Bell on their restaurant menu “ground beef” that does not meet any of these definitions, standards and labeling guidelines, “said Beasley Allen attorney Dee Miles.” This product is not permissible “ground beef” to consider and many ingredients of the “seasoning” are actually binders, fillers and dyes. These ingredients increase the overall volume of this product, reducing the actual content of the “beef” per serving. It is against the law in this country to take money from someone for a product that is distorted. This lawsuit seeks to stop such conduct and practice, “he said.
The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of Southern California Division (8:11-cv-00101-DOC-FFM) by Beasley Allen W. lawyers Daniel “Dee” Miles, III, and William E. Hopkins, Jr. And the firm of San Diego Law & O’Reardon blood Hurst, LLP, lawyers Timothy G. blood, Leslie E. Hurst and Thomas J. O’Reardon, II. The plaintiffs in the case are Obney Amanda, on behalf of itself, all others in the same situation, and the general public.
