Taco Bell Goes "100% Unnatural"!By Ali Geering-Kline
Taco Bell has been under fire recently for its questionable “seasoned ground beef” that apparently contains less than 35% real meat. An Alabama lawfirm has filed a lawsuit claiming that Taco Bell is using false advertising when it refers to using “seasoned ground beef” in its products. Instead, the meat is a sort of mixture, made up of a majority of binders and extenders that do not meet the minimum requirements set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to be labeled as “beef”, according to legal complaints.
It seems this absence of meat was predicted by the Onion “News Network” two years ago, when they published a news video declaring that Taco Bell was going “100% Green” by going “100% Unnatural”–that way, “no real food, water or energy will be wasted on feeding real cattle”.
