Taco Bell‘s President and Chief Concept Officer Greg Creed has just released a statement via the Taco Bell website that publicly adresses a class action lawsuit questioning Taco Bell beef quality. The statement makes sure to re-iterate that they purchase their beef from the same trusted brands that you find in supermarkets, with a reference made to the likes of Tyson Foods. Their products start with 100 percent USDA-inspected beef. Creed continues to state that the lawyers and parties behind the lawsuit “got their ‘facts’ absolutely wrong” and that legal action is planned for the false statements being made about their food. The statement makes no specific mentions of how much of their beef product is actually beef, but from what their statement alludes, it gives off the impression that the lawsuit may be completely superfluous.
Taken from TacoBell.com:
“At Taco Bell, we buy our beef from the same trusted brands you find in the supermarket, like Tyson Foods. We start with 100 percent USDA-inspected beef. Then we simmer it in our proprietary blend of seasonings and spices to give our seasoned beef its signature Taco Bell taste and texture. We are proud of the quality of our beef and identify all the seasoning and spice ingredients on our website. Unfortunately, the lawyers in this case elected to sue first and ask questions later — and got their “facts” absolutely wrong. We plan to take legal action for the false statements being made about our food.”
