A woman was horrified recently after finding a set of teeth inside her barbacoa tacos.
Courtney Aguilar decided to share her discovery by posting it online, which swiftly went viral. Sharing a photo of the mystery gnashers, which were discovered at Mexican restaurant El Rincon in Texas, she said:
I asked the server if this was teeth. She said, ‘baby teeth.’
Since then, the restaurant has replied to the post by saying they were aware of the situation:
Barbacoa is one the few items that we buy pre-made from an approved FDA vendor and we are no longer going to buy from that vendor.
Barbacoa is cooked with different parts of the cow but mostly from the head or cheek of cattle.
The restaurant then came back with a further update stating that they weren’t teeth after all, and they were actually “beef lips”, which are “a USDA-inspected product for human consumption”.
We admit cow lips are not the most attractive food item and can resemble teeth. Unfortunately, it made its way into this customer’s dish.
Yeah I’m not really buying that. That hunk of matter 100% looks like teeth. And even if they aren’t, “beef lips” sounds equally as unappetising.
So what’s the moral of this story? Don’t eat meat – trust me, there are many benefits to going veggie.
