We appreciate their value for our safety but that is a lot of beef to recall from one report. Maybe Taco Bell is a little sensitive after they were sued in 2011 by people claiming that their meat contained only 35% beef.
For now, they are suggesting that you try different fillings. Potato and egg taco anyone? For not at least approximately 11,500 cows worth of meat are finding their way to the rubbish tip.
