Taco Bell: Animal-rights group wants you to go totally meatless

Taco Bell…save these cows!

​This morning, Nathan Runkle, the founder and executive director of the Chicago-based Mercy for Animals organization sent a letter to Greg Creed, president of Taco Bell, requesting that the fast-food chain go completely meatless.

Taco Bell has been in the eye of an intense media storm for nearly a week since a class-action lawsuit was filed in California claiming that the Tex-Mex chain, owned by Louisville-based Yum! Brands, was serving a beef product that didn’t really have much beef in it.

“Why shouldn’t they go completely meat-free,” says Mercy for Animals spokesman Matt Rice. “They’re already halfway there.”
