It claimed Taco Bell's meat mixture has too many binders and extenders to meet federal requirements to be labeled beef. But Taco bell said the allegations were quote "absolutely wrong."

The law firm now claims its withdrawing its lawsuit because Taco Bell made changes to its marketing and product disclosure.
