I just don't know what Taco Bell has done to their food but it's
making our stomachs upset. We have eaten Taco Bell for many years but
recently we've decided to stop going. That slop they serve for meat is
totally digusting. The thought of it makes me want to puke. And their
beans aren't as good either. For us, they've killed the craving.

Lo siento, TB, adios!

Six years ago I bought two bean and cheese tacos. That night I went to
the ER with severe stomach disturbances. After ruling out a heart
attack they shot me full of morphine and instructed me to take Zantac
daily which I did for a couple of years. I still have to watch what I
eat. Anytime I eat Taco Hell I have the exact same symptoms that
require several dosings of Pepto. Any fast food seems to be capable of
ruining my night.

Recently there was an article about the four fold increase in stomach
cancer in young males in the US. Got me to thinking, who is the number
one market cutomer for fast food? Young males. You know what I
decided? I'm not going to eat food made by people making minimum wage.
I've greatly reduced the food I eat made by people who are strangers
to me. I wash all the food I cook.

Food handling should be a highly paid occupation so valued that the
workers would never risk being fired. They should make as much as a
hair stylist or a car salesman. People's lives are at stake.

I've eaten Taco Bell for 25+ plus year's and I never once got sick from it.

WAY back, when I was a graduate student at USC (Columbia, SC), one of my
fellow students, who was from Mexico City, observed that he liked to eat at
Taco Bell -- since it was a nice change from Mexican food ...

It has nothing to do with Mexican food, but it can be good if prepared
properly. I had to give up on the local TBs because they quit bothering
to drain the meat after cooking, and went to a lower-grade quality of
lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese to throw in. (I'l mention in passing how
dirty the prep line looked, and the flies in the dining room.) The
burritos also got downright tiny- what used to take two hands to hold,
you can now eat with one, without looking. I sometimes try TBs in other
cities, and the quality is better, but the sizes are still small.

I think most of it has to do with the quality of the employees and
training, or the lack thereof. Slackjaw employees, in general, can't do
anything very well. And if they can't read the words alongside the
pictures on the instruction sheet over each station, well, what can you do?
