It's a Beef!

Ah Taco Bell. Fast tasteless food with a synthetic Mexican touch to it and a Chihuahua as a mascot. Does it get any better? Well, it does. What if the meat you were served in your tacos, wasn't actually...meat?

An Alabama law firm has now sued Taco Bell for false advertising. According to the law firm, the "beef" Taco Bell serves in their tacos is mainly made up by chemicals, starches and powders. The firm claims that the taco filling, also called "beef", is only made up of 36% meat and that according to the USDA, food labelled as "meat taco filling" should contain at least 40% meat.

Taco Bell is denying the lawsuit, saying in a statement that "We start with 100 percent USDA-inspected beef. Then we simmer it in our proprietary blend of seasonings and spices to give our seasoned beef its signature Taco Bell taste and texture."

Come on. Next you're going to tell me that your Chihuahua actually can talk.
