Lawsuit Claims Taco Bell's Beef Isn't Really Beef At All

Hang on vegetarians and vegans who just read that title and thought, “Hm. Does that mean I can eat Taco Bell beef?” While Taco Bell might not be serving beef as defined by the dictionary, it’s also not totally devoid of cow parts. In fact, what Taco Bell is calling beef is only 36% beef.

The lawsuit brought forward by California resident Amanda Obney accuses the chain of putting one over on customers. She isn’t asking for money. Instead, she just wants Taco Bell to be honest on the menu about the reality of their beef product.

The lawsuit says that while the chicken on the menu is really chicken, the seasoned beef advertised contains “water, isolated oat product, wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltrodextrin, anti-dusting agent, autolyzed yeast extract, modified corn starch and sodium phosphate as well as beef and seasonings.”

According to the USDA beef is “flesh of cattle.” Based on the list of ingredients from the lawsuit, I would say that cattle flesh is probably not the main ingredient in Taco Bell’s beef.

Not that I mind. In fact, many Ecorazzi viewers would probably be thrilled if Taco Bell did in the USA what they are doing in India: expanding their vegetarian options. It sounds like their current beefy product is just one step away from being totally veg, so why not push it over the veg edge and make it a more healthful and animal friendly option.

Veld donates money to farm animals and also serves them

Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld.

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
