CLARIFICATION: It's "88 percent beef and 12 percent secret recipe" WHY A SECRET RECIPE? "Plain ground beef tastes boring"
COMPARE TO THE OTHER VERSION OF THE STORY: According to the Alabama law firm suing Taco Bell, the meat is 36 percent beef. "The other 64% is mostly tasteless fibers, various industrial additives and some flavoring and coloring," writes Gizmodo's Jesus Diaz. AGAIN, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUING US: "We are proud of the quality of
our beef and identify all the seasoning and
spice ingredients on our website. Unfortunately, the lawyers in
this case elected to sue first and ask questions
later--and got their 'facts' absolutely wrong. We plan to
take legal action for the false statements being
made about our food."
