oats?!?!! That sounds awfully natural compared to what I perceive their "taco flavored meat sauce" to be primarily comprised of (sorry for ending in a preposition... sorry everyone, sorry =)

UPDATED CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT STATEMENT January 26, 2011

"The lawsuit is bogus and filled with completely inaccurate facts. Our beef is 100% USDA inspected, just like the quality beef you would buy in a supermarket and prepare in your home. It then is slow-cooked and simmered with proprietary seasonings and spices to provide Taco Bell's signature taste and texture. Our seasoned beef recipe contains 88% quality USDA-inspected beef and 12% seasonings, spices, water and other ingredients that provide taste, texture and moisture. The lawyers got their facts wrong. We take this attack on our quality very seriously and plan to take legal action against them for making false statements about our products. There is no basis in fact or reality for this suit and we will vigorously defend the quality of our products from frivolous and misleading claims such as this."

Ahhh yes, just what I wanted. A taco with meat that is less than 50% real meat (fact), has meat in it from the "Beef Company" who uses an ammonia based process to sterilize crappy parts of the cow (fact), and uses SAND as an anti caking agent (fact). No thanks, I'll pass, I like myself too much to fill it with TOTAL crap. (Partial crap is acceptable :-)

vote-for21vote-against

why is everyone making a big deal about this and claiming that they will never eat at Taco Bell again? Especially, when they'll "pass" on Taco Bell and go to another Fast Food place who has 40% beef instead.
Pretty much all food at Fast Food places are not completely real meat when it cost under $3. Start paying $4 for a food item and you'll at least start getting claims of 100% meat.
Remember you get what you pay for in life so get over it. If you won't eat at Taco Bell anymore then you shouldn't be eating at any other fast food place either

Guess what.. Taco Bell tastes awesome. I have had Tacos at literally dozens of Mexican/Texican/Dominican restaurants and they all have a very similar "restaurant taco taste".. Which to me is not as good as the Taco Bell taco.

If it tastes good.. eat it! (Unless it's Anti-Freeze which has a very sweet taste)...

As for other fast food places.. there is no point in getting a burger at wendys/mcdonalds/etc.. 5 Guys Burgers & Fries has the holy grail of hamburgers period!

@mason4300: Don't worry. spikepig didn't provide any facts. He probably also believed Bill Gates is going to pay him if he forwards an email, because he's helping Bill to test his email tracking software.

He said it contains sand, which is l33t speak for "I have no idea what I'm talking about. I just like regurgitating trash." What he meant to say is that it contains Silicon Dioxide as a caking agent. So do instant mashed potatoes and a whole range of other things. So, either he grows his own vegetables, or he picks and chooses the foods he wants to trash based on common ingredients that he can rename to make them sound gross.

Too bad for him, silicon dioxide is also naturally found in many vegetables.

@spikepig: Sand, aka silicon dioxide is a pretty common food additive (1). There was also a study that looked at the effects of SiO2, and it appeared to have some health benefits in reducing the incidence of Alzheimer’s type dementia (2).

That being said, 'USDA inspected' is extremely vague, and could be grades that aren't commonly used in food service (3).

Course, that doesn't mean they don't taste good when drunk at 3am.

Don't get me wrong, I'll always love The Bell...but the idea of "Spreadable Meat" has never been all that appealing. Buuuut, I guess that's why they've never used it in a slogan... doesn't make it any less tasty though :D

On a related note.. my Taco Bell has had a buncha slackass kitchen workers runnin' the place for a while. Food TOTALLY sucks 90% of the time, just because pretty much whatever I order has like a tablespoon of meat, a couple grams of lettuce and only fills like 1/3rd of the tortilla..

But if you're lucky enough to get a Taco Bell that makes the food right...you hold on tight - and NEVER let go. Never.

My son will be thrilled with this. I am typically not a fan but our Taco Bell is not as awful as some that I have been in. He loves those volcano ones. ick!

I worked there for a summer while in high school, and one of my jobs was to make the meat. The ground beef came in a big bag (around 6"x6"x18", I'm guessing 15-25 pounds). I'd put it in a rectangular pan about the size of a cookie sheet with 8" sides. I'd smash up the meat with what looked kind of like an industrial sized potato masher, added some water, and a hand-sized packet of seasoning (maybe 1 pound). The seasoning had a label, and I was always amused that the first ingredient was, in fact, oats. The other ingredients were various spices, and it probably did have silicon dioxide as an anti-caking ingredient, like half the other powdered products you could buy at the grocery store. I don't know the exact percentages, but I'd go more along the lines of TB's 88% beef than the 36% in the lawsuit. Things have changed since I worked there (we used to shred our cheese and fry our shells in the store), but I don't think the beef recipe changed too much since then.

vote-for4vote-against

BTW, I don't remember what grade the meat was, if any. My brother works in the cattle industry doing tracking (that's how they can say an outbreak came from a certain feed lot or ranch). Anyway, the USDA can inspect the meat at the slaughter house for health and safety, but giving it a grade is optional. The grade is done by cutting the carcass almost in half and looking at the rib eye (my brother also worked with a system where a computer would determine the grade using a camera). Most of the grade is the fat content and marbling. That's important for the flavor and tenderness of steaks, but ground beef is cuts from all over the animal and has extra fat added to it. I laugh when I see "Kobe" or "Wagyu" burgers because the premium price is because there's so much marbling, but grinding makes it irrelevant.

"USDA Inspected" literally means "this meat is legal for human consumption". That's it.

In fact, "USDA Inspected" doesn't even technically mean that, because even rotting disgusting meat, inspected by the USDA, which does not pass, was still 'inspected' by the USDA.

Taco Bell is gross. End of story.

35% beef or not, that stuff tastes good! Just the same I am sure it isn't amongst the unhealthiest of fast foods. I'm sure it isn't at the top, but it certainly isn't at the bottom.

Coupon application won't let me print the coupon. Says they disable printers that have the ability of capturing an image of the coupon - I suppose like an all-in-one printer that has a scanner. Well, one printer is soooo old, it can do nothing but print. I bought it back in the day when households didn't have scanners because they were too expensive or way too bulky to be the norm.

Dear Wooters,

I work at a plant that mines sand. I do not appreciate your dislike for it. When I walk around the plant, i get mouthfuls of sand from falling. It is safe to eat, just a bit crunchy.

Thanks

Taco Bell employees themselves have been posting for a while now that they changed their meat formula in the last couple years. I don't eat TB very often because the one by me sucks in the way of service. But I like the food. Let's all face it, we've all been eating mystery meat since grade school lunches.

vote-for3vote-against

More interesting than this absurd argument is the fact that the coupon is for a free taco that normally costs about 80 cents. Hardly even worth the paper, ink and electricity used to print it.

Thanks for ruining the environment, Taco Bell. Also, don't stop being tasty.

To all the "it's only USDA inspected!" folks- http://www.snopes.com/food/prepare/badmeat.asp

As it turns out, there is NO GRADE for ground beef, because there's no point, it either passes or it doesn't.

One taco is never enough for a meal, so anyone complaining about the value should just print it and use it as part of a complete Taco Bell meal with burritos, nachos and whatever else you buy. A penny saved is a penny earned.
