Taco Bell and "Where's the Beef" Via KTLA News

Via: KTLA News

Recently I shared a few news reports on McDonald's beef and how it was mostly made up of lesser quality meat plus a whole lot of other ingredients, this makes the beef product cost effective to sell for less.  This article concerns Taco Bell and what is included in the beef taco, or we should say what really isn't included; beef.  Apparently the beef filler in the beef taco is only 15% beef with the rest coming from: water, isolated oat product, wheat oats, soy lecithin, maltodextrin, anti-dusting agent, autolyzed yeast extract, modified corn starch, sodium phosphate, as well as some beef and sprinkle seasonings. 

As I am writing this I am also wondering if the 15% beef they do use is from the same facility that manufacturers the beef for McDonalds and other fast food chains.  If so then there really is even less actual beef than the 15% as I don't include part that would be non edible in its natural state to be consider consumable beef.
