Taco Bell buzz on the ‘beef’ class-action lawsuit


Taco Bell diners (or would-be diners) -- and Taco Bell itself -- take taco filling seriously.

News that a California woman was filing suit over the beef content of tacos was reported Tuesday by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Readers responded with a mixture of disgust, irritation with the lawsuit itself and societal perspective. Wrote keithbcr on the paper’s website: “I don’t go to Taco Bell for nutrition, I stop there because it’s open at 3 a.m. and a burrito is fairly easy to shovel down while driving home.”

Readers of a Booster Shots blog post on the lawsuit also weighed in. FranchiseHound writes: “All fast food places use fillers. Let’s just be happy that its nothing else more disturbing that was found!” And hbruno comments on the same post: “What do people expect, when eating at the very bottom of the food chain? Radical thought: Try eating a little less and higher quality.”


Taco Bell itself, however, responded with less aplomb, threatening to fight back in kind.

Stay tuned to see what happens with this food fight.
