There's a lot of talk right now about what really hides inside Taco Bell's beef—better known as "Taco Meat Filling"—and so naturally the fast food restaurant was bound to chime in with some rather angry words:


'At Taco Bell, we buy our beef from the same trusted brands you find in the supermarket, like Tyson Foods. 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. 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.'

Greg Creed
President and Chief Concept Officer
Taco Bell Corp

It is worth noting that the lawsuit isn't asking for any money, just for a correction on Taco Bell's part.
