Taco Bell restaurants in some states are asking customers to try chicken or steak in their burritos after quality concerns pushed it to stop serving seasoned beef temporarily.


According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service, Kenosha Beef International is recalling an undetermined amount of seasoned beef products that may be contaminated with metal shavings.  

The Taco Bell Seasoned Beef Taco and Burrito products were shipped to restaurant locations nationwide. 

Taco Bell told affected restaurants to stop serving seasoned beef it as it replenishes supplies. 

The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS on Oct. 12, 2019, that it received three customer complaints.

Affected locations are in Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio and elsewhere, though the company could not immediately say how many stores were no longer serving seasoned beef.

Customers were complaining on Twitter about not being able to satiate late-night cravings. In a statement, the company apologized for any inconvenience.

FSIS has confirmed there have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
