My Province Report


To finish the web quest i will need to first pick a topic.Then I will need to find out who is involved, what were they fighting for or about, also when in history did it occur, and where in the United States did it happen, lastly why was change being called for.

3. Research your topic further, through websites I have provided and through independent research and be sure to find the 5 W's in your research:
- WHO was involved?
David C. Novak the CEO of taco bell
-WHAT were they fighting for/seeking?
I am fighting to see change in the quality of meat they use or have people stop going there.
- WHEN in history did this occur?
This has happend
- WHERE in the United States (geographically)?
This has been happening in 75% of the taco bell's stores across America.

-WHY is changed being called for?
The change that is being called for is that taco bell isn't using real meat and they try to cover it up. They need to man up and tell the truth. The test even show this and they still refuse this.


Taco Bell Scandal
Have you ever felt like there was something other than meat was in your taco at taco bell. Well that is what I will be talking about with you today. People have all ways complained about how bad their food is when you eat it, well now people aren't complaining if its cheap. Taco bell may have really cheap tacos but have you ever thought about what was in them, well your about to find out.

Lots of people eat hear so wouldn't you think that they would take the time to get good meat rather than cutter, which is the lowest possible grade in which contains shredded cow organs. Now if can name 1 person who would want to eat shredded cow organs then i would give you a hundred dollars. So why would David C. Novak the CEO of taco bell want to give you that horrible stuff. In David's defense he has made an ad campaign that is titled "Thanks for suing us!". Of course not but he does so he can make a quick buck by giving you the worst grade of meat. Montgomery, Alabama is one of the of the towns that has this problem. Here taco bell was sued by a local for not using the meat standard which includes "No more than 30% fat, and must not include sodium, but no water, phosphates, extenders, or binders added.” The meat from Taco Bell does not meet the minimum requirements set by the USDA. So with this in mind Taco bell must not include sodium, but it is said that they include more than your daily intake of sodium. There is so much sodium that you would have enough sodium in take you would be set for one and a half days. Thats way to much sodium for one meal.

Now you know about who was behind all this. You know where it happened. You also know why its bad for you. After knowing all of this info would you ever eat a taco bell ever again.
