Taco Bell officials deny claims made in a lawsuit that the meat in their tacos and other products is not all beef.
Taco Bell President Greg Creed said Tuesday in a statement that the lawyers who filed the lawsuit got their facts wrong. He says Taco Bell plans to take legal action against those making the allegations though he didn't specify what the company would do.
A lawsuit filed Friday by the Alabama law firm Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles claims Taco Bell is engaging in false advertising because the meat mixture contains binders and fillers.
Creed said that Taco Bell buys the same brands of beef sold in supermarkets. He said the beef is simmered in a blend of seasonings.
