Comparing themselves--favorably!--to one of the nation's largest mass-producers of packaged food products, Taco Bell got the word out this morning via an email from parent company Yum! Brands' PR department that the lawsuit filed alleging their beef isn't so...beefy is as full of crap as the suit says their beef is.Says Greg Creed, President and Chief Concept Officer of Taco Bell Corp.:

“At Taco Bell, we buy our beef from the same trusted brands you find in the supermarket, like Tyson Foods. We start with 100 percent USDA-inspected beef. Then we simmer it in our proprietary blend of seasonings and spices to give our seasoned beef its signature Taco Bell taste and texture. We are proud of the quality of our beef and identify all the seasoning and spice ingredients on our website. Unfortunately, the lawyers in this case elected to sue first and ask questions later -- and got their “facts” absolutely wrong. We plan to take legal action for the false statements being made about our food.”

There...don't we all feel better about ordering up some Nachos Bel Grande?
