The words "seasoned beef" have become fighting words for a California woman suing Taco Bell for her claim that there's too little "beef" to merit labeling it as such.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel says the class-action suit alleges false advertising claims. It explains:
"It says Taco Bell's ground beef is made of such components as water, isolated oat product, wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltodextrin, anti-dusting agent, autolyzed yeast extract, modified corn starch and sodium phosphate, as well as some beef and seasonings." Taco Bell hasn't responded to the charges, according to media reports. Check out the story here.
