they are required to report it like that. anyone who makes taco meat with the packet knows you add a cup (ish depending on the consistency you like) of water with the seasoning pack (that has things like flours and/or corn starch FOR TEXTURE). That means my taco meat is no longer 100% beef (it's 10+% water now!).Yeah, so essentially they use 100% beef, just like everyone else does, and then puts seasoning and other shit in it...just like everyone else does. The only difference is that Taco Bell mixes it all up, so they stupidly labeled it as 88% beef for some reason (I'm assuming that moron got fired). That's like saying a Wendy's spicy chicken is only 88% chicken, because all the spices and breading and shit isn't chicken. If, for some reason, Wendy's sold a "ground spicy chicken" taco, they might call it 88% chicken too. If they were dumb.
It is still 100% beef, just like everyone else. They just included the additives for some stupid reason.
no, this is what is on the packaging and what you're ingestingYou're just focusing on the one aspect because it makes Taco Bell look bad.
El Diablo might be my favorite fast food burger (In N Out notwithstanding).Renewed faith in carls Jr. Swore them off for 1-2 years due to endless bad special burgers then embracing the beyond meat horseshit. New special is interesting and I assume terrible, but theyve been running $2.99 doubles of a wider variety. So a basic cheese, the california classic (my fave), and I forget 3rd, something dumb, then in limited markets like CO they have Jalapeno and a Guacamole. Not as small as I thought theyd be. I'd argue a pretty good value though I'd love to see a 2 for $5 kinda thing.
Plants that work on that level of volume have at least one USDA inspector there, all day, every day. They even have to give the motherfucker his own personal office and parking spot (not kidding, it's written in the CFR). He does Pre-Operation inspection and can hold a room to be recleaned. They can hold/destroy product, and if bad enough literally shut you down until you fix your shit. It's almost funny how much power the USDA has over the FDA, who have limp dicks in comparison.I don't understand why people think that those food production videos are a ploy. The larger the corporation, (usually) the better and cleaner their production lines have to be. They cannot risk getting a line or factory shut down by inspectors because of the massive undertaking in both time and money for them to reopen. Remember when the Oklahoma Blue Bell plant had to close because of the listeria found in some cartons? That shit almost bankrupted them and kept their ice cream off the shelves in the SW for more than four months. If the real beef is what the ingredients are then that's another place where larger corporations cannot fuck around because of giant lawsuits if they don't use the ingredients disclosed to the government/public. Do you really think in the age of social media that a worker wouldn't snap a pic of nasty meat getting processed for a huge company so that they could get a payout?
was talking to a woman last week who used to work tyson chicken and now works at the hills (it's petfood here), she says the spec is ultra tight and amazingly clean and the hills, she basically said its like heaven and hell, i think they have 2 lines there and governed by FDAPlants that work on that level of volume have at least one USDA inspector there, all day, every day.
