Taco Bell sued for false advertising....

http://www.geekologie.com/2011/01/ta..._for_false.php

Quote:
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).

also here is the list of everything found

So they basically add half veggie meat to the real meat?

That doesn't sound bad!

I don't know about you guys, but I'd hate to order and pay for a 50" tv just to find out when it arrives that it's actually 17.5" and the rest of the box is filled with crap. I guess you could argue that whoever visits Taco Bell on a regular basis has already given up any attempt on proper nutrition, but unfortunately this cheating with food products extends a lot further than just fast-food chains. I'm all for those guys suing the crap out of Taco Bell. You have to start somewhere.

If you actually eat anything from Taco Bell you get what you deserve.
