Taco Bell Concern with Their Customer’s Safety First by Recalling 2.3 Million Pounds of Beef
After a customer discovered a metal shaving in their menu item, Taco Bell has recalled 2.3 million pounds of seasoned beef. Shares of parent-company Yum Brands have been lower on the news.
Julie Masino, president Taco Bell Corp. North America, mentioned Nothing is more important than their customers’ safety, and Nothing means more to the company than their guest trust, in a press release. As soon as the company received the first consumer complaint, they instantly remove the product from the affected restaurants as well as proactively worked with the supplier to inform the USDA of the company’s steps to protect guests.
Taco Bell says it had the product instantly removed from its restaurants and distribution centers upon finding out concerning the customer’s complaint, and the company contacted the Food & Drug Administration. The recall impacts distribution centers following region, Michigan, Virginia, Ohio, New Jersey, and New York.
Yum Brand is cataloged to report its third-quarter outcomes on Oct. 30, with Wall Street analysts surveyed by IBES anticipating earnings of 96 cents a share on revenue of $1.35 billion.
