IRVINE (AP) — Taco Bell officials deny claims made in a lawsuit that the meat in their tacos and other products is not all beef.

Taco Bell President Greg Creed said Tuesday in a statement that the lawyers who filed the lawsuit got their facts wrong. He said Taco Bell plans to take legal action against those making the allegations. He did not explain specifically what Irvine-based Taco Bell would do.

A class-action lawsuit filed Friday by a Montgomery law firm says the Taco Bell meat mixture contains binders and fillers. The lawsuit claims Taco Bell falls short of the USDA’s requirement that its filling be at least 40 percent fresh meat.

Creed said that Taco Bell buys the same brands of beef sold in supermarkets. He said the beef is simmered in a blend of seasonings.
