An Alabama-based law firm has withdrawn its class-action lawsuit that attempted to force Taco Bell to stop calling the meat it serves "beef."

The lawsuit, filed in January, alleged that what Taco Bell calls "seasoned beef" is a meat mixture that has binders and extenders and does not meet federal requirements to be labeled beef.

The fast-food chain said Monday the allegations were "absolutely wrong" and the lawsuit was voluntarily withdrawn by the firm. It said no money was exchanged and it is not changing any of its products or advertising.
