    People will sue over anything. It's the American way you know.

    Well, at least it isn't a lawsuit over the person got fat by eating their food.

    I'd sort of agree with taking that to court. I'm sorry but if the actual meat content of your meat is less than 35%, you can't call it "meat".

    "Meat-infused filling"? :lol

    It's not the size of the taco, it's the meat content.

    It's like (to use your comparison), Hasbro saying "this is a die cast Transformer" when they only use die-cast on his toes.

    So why did you change my quote? I said unfrivolous for a reason.

    I also vote for "unfrivolous". She doesn't want money, and the 35% beef statistic (if accurate) is astounding to me, even for Taco Bell. Good for her.

    Hey, that stuff starts in school lunch programs, I used to be the Cust. Sv. Mgr. for a meat company, the schools would buy meat products that were 75% or more TVP..Textured Vegetable Protein. Yum, yum :p

    So the real meat is basically seasoning for the pinto bean and soy matter. Hey, you want some real meat in your Mexican food, go to Moe's or Qdoba. Or better yet, go to Mexico.

    Schools don't advertise lunches as food, much less declare that "meat" is meat. Shit, I remember one time I ordered fried chicken and there was a spine under all the "meat" and breading... I didn't think chicken backs had any culinary value whatsoever.

    Where's the beef?

    Also yeah, refreshing to see someone raising issue with fast food without the want for monetary (sp?) gain.

    Aww, but I like "anti-dusting agent" :( 

    Anyway, if it doesn't meet the minimum meat guidelines, then they definitely shouldn't be allowed to call it "beef" in the advertising, so this doesn't sound frivolous. I would be interested, though, to know what proportion of the "meat mixture" each component comprises. Because if each of the other components is less than ~35% of the mix then, technically, the greatest percentage ingredient is beef even if it isn't the majority ingredient.

    My best friend is a Registered Dietician, the schools can get away with this because as long as they follow the guidelines given to them by the "guvment" they can serve said yuck. Does it have x amount of proteins, carbs, etc.? If so, they can serve it. She told me a pkg. of ketchup is considered a vegetable. Go figure. :crazy:

    I found Mexican food from Mexico to be sort of... bland.

    I'm not very stunned by that 35% number. I expected something worse. Maybe this is just my silly eating habits kicking in. If it tastes good, doesn't kill me, and is legal, I'll scarf it down.
