Semi-Vegetarian Tacos

Somebody figured out that Taco Bell's meat filling is not all beef, and they're suing.

But, take a lot at what is alleged to be added to your "beef" taco.
"water, ‘Isolated Oat Product,’ wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltodrextrin, anti-dusting agent, autolyzed yeast extract, modified corn starch and sodium phosphate.."
Sounds like to me they reduced the percentage of the "bad," unhealthy beef...and added in vegetable products that are more healthy.  See the OC Register, Jan 24, for more.

Not only that, they put in all that tasteless, healthy veggie stuff and kept the taste that people want.

Oats, soy, yeast, corn.   This could be a health food store supplement.  Water?  Sodium phosphate?  These are added to many foods.

So, what's your reward for stealthily reducing red meat in the American diet (and saving money, since it's cheaper)?

Sued for false advertising.  Only in America.

Considering the investment in four years of law school, you have to do something to support 25% of the world's lawyers.
