This is why your Taco Bell was mysteriously out of beef over the weekend

Taco Bell Menu Items, Headquarters And Restaurant Shoot

Taco Bell customers wondering where the beef has been for the past few days now have their answer.

Last Friday, the chain quietly pulled about 2.3 million pounds of seasoned beef from restaurants in 21 states over concerns that it was contaminated with metal shavings.

Taco Bell revealed in a press release on Tuesday morning that the reason why the tainted meat was voluntarily removed and discarded from locations across the eastern Midwest, northern Southeast and Northeast regions was because a customer reported finding a metal shaving in their food. The contaminated meat was traced back to one plant location on only one of the two lines used to make the seasoned beef, which was sent to distribution centers in Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Virginia.
