Taco Bell Recalls Meat Due to Metal Contamination.
Taco Bell has recalled 2.3 million pounds of seasoned beef due to a possible metal contamination after a consumer found metal shavings in their order.
The company took immediate action and pulled all potentially dangerous seasoned beef from restaurants in 21 states. As of today, all recalled meat has been taken out of restaurants.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture said there have not been any injuries or adverse reactions to the recalled meat at this time.
