👋 Before you go

A Green Bay, Wisconsin-based worker is calling out Taco Bell after claiming his location tried to force him to serve expired beef.

In a video with over 81,000 views, TikTok user @keep_it_real4life shows stacks of bags of beef in a walk-in fridge. Each one is marked with a “use-by” date.

“Today is March 15,” the TikToker says. “Our area coach came in last night and told us we have to use beef that expired on Feb. 27 of this year and March 10 of this year.”

The TikToker also claims he was asked to serve onions that are past their use-by date, as “they don’t want to throw it out because of food costs.”
