TacoBell Meat - Is it really worms?

I was talking with a co-worker today who swears that TacoBell's meat is made up of worms. She claims that they own a number of worm farms across the US and does this to keep thier prices low. I did some searching on the web but could not find any info on this topic. Does anyone know if this could possibly true? I dont think it could be but I wanted to double check...

Thanks in advance...

No, it's not true.

At least it wasn't a decade ago when I worked there in high school.

I heard the meat Taco Bell uses is some of the worst meat in fast food. But no one who wants to eat healthy gets fast food anyway!

I doubt they use worms, but I wouldn't be too surprised.

I highly doubt it. If word ever got out that they were using worms, it would equate to business suicide.

Regardless of where or how they obtained enough worms to supply all their restaurants, they would cost a heck of a lot more than any kind of meat. Try buying worms for fishing bait or even buying the stuff to make a worm farm. I believe they sell large amounts of worms for some kind of soil improvements but even they would cost more than meat.

I certainly wasn't implying that anyone actually believed this stuff, I just thought I'd comment on the validity.

Everyone is entitled to MY opinion.

Ugh. That is so gross. i wont be eating there again, thats for sure.

We make my own green chili for our burritos and tacos, we have no need for Taco Bell. However, their seasoning mix isnt bad...

Welcome to Toxic Bell, may we have your order?

And there is Jack in the Crack. I remember one night our local JIB got terrorised by high schoolers celebrating the summer off and really messed up the dining room area. One of the managers was in our ham radio club and offered a few of us free food if we helped clean the place up since the 2 employees going off duty had to catch a bus.

73's, Kim
