In the news 4/19/11: Lawsuit was voluntarily dropped.

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - What's in a name? That's the question at the heart of a class action lawsuit Montgomery, Alabama law firm Beasley Allen filed targeting fast food giant Taco Bell. The lawsuit claims the company uses "false advertising" on its menu and in its advertisements.

WSFA 12 News contacted the Taco Bell Corporation for a response to the lawsuit. Company spokesman Rob Poetsch issued this statement::

"Taco Bell prides itself on serving high quality Mexican inspired food with great value. We're happy that the millions of customers we serve every week agree. We deny our advertising is misleading in any way and we intend to vigorously defend the suit.

    Geez, would you all stop posting about food stuff - I'll never be able to eat again between the bad for me freebie food restaurants serve, the un-beef beef and recalls.

    I don't know what all is in there meat but I do remember reading somewhere that it contains sand to prevent the meat from sticking together. From what I read though a lot of restaurants do that. That's pretty gross if you ask me.

    The Consumerist found the list of non-beef ingredients and listed them in detail:

    What Exactly Are Those Extra Ingredients In Taco Bell's Ground Beef?
    Since the news broke about the lawsuit alleging that Taco Bell's ground beef doesn't meet the USDA's definition of "ground beef," there has been a lot of speculation about exactly what percentage of the taco filling is actually made up of non-meat ingredients. But what's been left out of the discussion is a closer look at what those extra recipe items are doing there.

    Its not as though people going to Taco Bell are overly concerned with their diet to start with. I would think if they were, then they mos likely would not be going in the first place.

    Taco Bell said today that Alabama-based Beasley Allen law firm voluntarily withdrew the class action lawsuit against the company. As Taco Bell has stated before, the allegations in the lawsuit and in public statements about Taco Bell's seasoned beef, food quality and advertising were absolutely wrong. After reviewing the facts, the lawyers for the plaintiff withdrew the lawsuit. No money or other value was exchanged between the parties, and Taco Bell is not making any changes to its products or advertising.
