Do You Believe Taco Bell Serves 'Real' Meat?
Tuesday, March 22, 2011
Taco Bell is responding to the class action lawsuit filed in January for false advertising about its meat. The fast food chain is fighting to withhold its reputation with a commercial stating that its meat is actually 88 percent beef and 12 percent "signature recipe."
The commercial features real Taco Bell employees certifying that their employer's meat is authentic -- even with the 12 percent of seasoning and "other ingredients" signature recipe. While the lawsuit still claims Taco Bell's meat is only 35 percent beef, which means it cannot be advertised as "beef," the company is doing its best to fire back.
Never mind the statistics, the concept of a major meat fast-food chain being sued for selling fake meat is definitely unsettling. Find out if our readers believe Taco Bell's meat is "real" or not.
