I don't recall ordering Horse Tacos or the Mr. Ed Combo last time I was at Taco Bell. In fact, I distinctly recall being under the impression I was
getting beef in my taco. Good old Beef. I draw the line at Horse Meat and I can only guess at how this plays out in the long term for the places who
have allowed it to happen.
The affected products are Birds Eye's Traditional Spaghetti Bolognese and Beef Lasagne; Brakes' Spicy Beef Skewer; Taco Bell's Ground Beef.
Taco Bell has three outlets in Britain and says all its affected stock has been removed. The products had come from a supplier in Europe, the company
A spokesman for Taco Bell said: "Once we learned of this issue, we immediately voluntarily tested our product for our three Taco Bell restaurants in
Now of course, this is a story in England and dealing with a European supplier, not an American one. I really don't care or see the major distinction
though. It's like saying it happened in Georgia and not Missouri for the difference it ought to make. It's still major, name brand food outlets
doing less than their due dilligence, by my thinking, in insuring their supply chain has integrity and quality control.
It's not good enough to simply stand back and say "We didn't know... Doh!". Food chains serve food, obviously. That brings responsibility beyond
just making sure the next guy in line says it's all okay. It means making sure it's how it should be. At least that's my take ...and It'll be real
hard to consider stopping for a Taco now, with this in mind. Sorry Taco Bell... it's just one of those things. Some bells can't be un-rung very
easily or quickly.
