Last Saturday, my husband picked us up Taco Bell for dinner. I began having horrible stomach pain and it worsened as the evening went on. I was up all night with the pain. I finally took Pepto Bismol the next day, and as the day progressed, I began to feel better. I could only eat soup the entire day.
I had asked my FB friends for prayer that first night. Then today, under that post, a sister in Christ posted the Fox News story about the recall of 2.3 million pounds of beef because of the discovery of metal shavings in the beef.
I am publishing this for the benefit of the brethren. If you have eaten Taco Bell and experienced stomach pain afterwards – and especially if you see blood in the stools – you MUST go to the ER.
Taco Bell recalled 2.3M pounds of seasoned beef due to ‘metal shaving’ found in meat, restaurant confirms
Taco Bell wants its customers to head for the border — not the hospital.
On Monday, the fast-food chain confirmed that a seasoned-beef recall affecting restaurants in 21 states throughout the Midwest, Southeast and Northeast was due to a “metal shaving” found in a menu item by a customer.
“Nothing is more important than our customers’ safety, and nothing means more to us than their trust,” said Julie Masino, Taco Bell’s North America president, in a press release. “As soon as we received the first consumer complaint, we immediately acted to remove the product from the affected restaurants and proactively worked with the supplier to inform the USDA of our steps to protect our guests.”
Upon being notified of the issue, Taco Bell “immediately” notified the USDA and identified the plant where the beef was processed before shutting down distribution channels. The voluntary recall, which was issued on Oct. 11, affects an estimated 2.3 million pounds of beef.
Customers first began taking note of a beef shortage at their local Taco Bells over the weekend, with some in disbelief that the chain would run out of one of its most popular ingredients.
