At the bottom is a link to a short, cute article written about the lawyer who originally file a lawsuit with Taco Bell regarding the ingredients of their 'beef'. I had researched before starting a discussion on here several months ago. What I found was a piece of information saying the lawyer checked the ingredients of the 'beef' and found it to have silocone and several other ingredients which, to me, were terribly unsavory. So I quick buying their 'beef' and I started a discussion. Most people as I recall said they would still eat there and didn't really care. So, afew days ago this article pops up. What do you folks think? http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/04/26/taco-bell-threatens-sue-law-firm-brought-beef-suit/

Well..celticeagle...I think I will have to move you "lock, stock and barrel"...to this SMALL Island, away from temptation...NO Taco bells, No McDonalds, No KFC, DQ or............NO FAST FOOD OUTLETS, NO temptations at all! I really don't trust ALL the processing and handling, knowing the end product comes from a "little or NO hope job." Even when I take the BIG boat (Ferry) to the BIG Metropolis (Vancouver or Victoria) I do NOT indulge at ANY Fast food outlet...OOPs, once in a while "Subway" where I can watch them make my food. I don't know...but as I have been here 31 years this June, away from Fast Food, I have capitulated at times...knowing full well, I will suffer the most horrendous indigestion for days. Am I now allergic to FF?

I think it would benefit me to be further away from fast food. Or any kind of restaurant. I say this after having just has some lovely chicken and spinach quesadillas at a Mexican restaurant.

You must not have read my other Taco Bell discussions. I have had a bad relationship with them since last Summer. It started with me not liking them all that well and them being right across the side street from our apartment. Then it went on with the article about the lawsuit, to parties in the parking lot, to the remodel they are now undergoing and last but not least--the eight cops in the parking lot incident recently. Read up! It would certainly benefit me to be away from fast food. And TB doesn't even enter into my favs.

I know they say that they cook it in water. My mom used to fix hamburger patties that way. Poach them. But, ya, I agree, it is like paste and very little of it. After you've eaten a home made taco it is very hard to like store bought ones. Just my opinion. I just didn't like the plastic that was one of the ingredients the law firm found in it when they did their test. Or had it done. Makes you wonder.

I think that Taco Bell is getting a lot of publicity, a lot of it free. It also has the potential to become a "hero" fighting against those "nasty" lawyers. I have not eaten there in over a year. Mainly, hubby says if we are paying to eat out we should at least have real dishes and silverware.

They also paid several million (2-3 I believe) for disclaimer commercial that played alot around the time this all started. I agree with your hubby. And so many better mexican restaurants around that we really don't need to eat dog food!

I don't eat taco bell so I'm not affected either way. I think people who eat fast food aren't really concerned about their health or the quality of their food. I think Taco Bell could have been proven to only have 20% beef and people would still eat there.

Where can the powers be that govern the safety of our foods made by fast food establishements? More and more caution and care needs to be taken in the handling of our foods in this industry. it is for the welfare of us all.

Looks like that Taco Bell will come out of this one on top. Over the years I have heard a lot of different stuff about the ingredients of food at fast food places. I think we need to get us a van and travel around just to try this food out and see what it's made of

That sounds like a good idea! Infact a co-worker and I had a similar one when I worked as a call director. We were going to take a van around the US and explain things to the stupid people who called us. We never got enough time to tell them what was on our minds. lol (Slap that one, repeat it AGAIN to this one, etc.)

I had never even heard of this before now. It doesn't taste silicon-y to me. It tastes pretty delicious, so I'm really hoping it is beef, but honestly, I'm more scared of what happens to the food once it gets to the restaurant. I've worked in fast food. Minimum wage, hot kitchen, greese... yea most of the employees don't really care.

Ya, I've some stories about what goes on in the kitchens. I just don't trust them. Makes it hard to believe them or the people who ran the test. They are out to make money.

Personally in cases like this, it does make you wonder why if someone decided that their is not enough evidence to prove anything, why did the Law firm at least acknowledge this, and someone made to apologize? Personally I think sometimes people try to cause a problem with a place never taking time to warrant all the facts, etc. one might need. But overall when something like this happens how can people really take heed to a company making this statement and then dropping it later on?

They did end up dropping the case. Didn't have enough to go on I suspect.
