Politics: Taco Bell responds to ground beef lawsuit, insists it’s mostly beef

  • 88% ground beef in our tacos, says Taco Bell source
  • ยป So now we have a number on record: You may remember when we commented on Taco Bell’s impending lawsuit over the “proprietary blend” that they sell in their beef tacos. The company has since begun mounting their defense, claiming their meatish mixture is in fact 88% ground beef, 12% secret recipe. This is a big distance from the lawsuit’s allegation, which places the real beef figure at 35%. We’re waiting with baited breath on this one.
