An Alabama law firm has filed a lawsuit claiming that Taco Bell is using false advertising when it refers to using "seasoned ground beef" or "seasoned beef."

The lawsuit claims the meat mixture sold by Taco Bell restaurants contains binders and extenders and does not meet the minimum requirements set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to be labeled as "beef."

The class-action lawsuit was filed Friday in federal court in the Central District of California by the Montgomery law firm Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles.

Attorney Dee Miles said the lawsuit does not seek monetary damages, but asks that Taco Bell be honest in its advertising.

Taco Bell spokesman Rob Poetsch said the company denies that its advertising is misleading.
