A California woman is suing Taco Bell for calling the meat-like substance in its Tacos "seasoned ground beef", when in reality only 15 percent of it is actual meat. The class-action suit notes that "Taco Bell's definition of 'seasoned beef' does not conform to consumers' reasonable expectation or ordinary meaning of seasoned beef, which is beef and seasonings," while beef is the "flesh of cattle," according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

According to this article on Chicago Breaking News, Taco Bell's "seasoned beef" is composed of such deliciousness as 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 seasoning. In the words of Homer Simpson, "hmmmm, autolyzed yeast extract".
