Certified Angus Beef Threatens NYC Restaurant Over ‘CAB’ Status on Menu
Maybe the country’s most famous meat company has some serious beef with a New York City restaurant, and what you smell like cooking isn’t sizzle … it’s all-out legal war! !!
Here’s the deal … Certified Angus Beef lashes out at Beetle House NYC for allegedly using the CAB label, without permission, to promote items on their menus.
The company has launched a legal threat, obtained by TMZ, claiming that Beetle House is using CAB’s good reputation to sell the Edward Burger Hand burger. Clever. You understand?
Anyway, the restaurant’s online menu says the burger comes with a “cab 1/2 galette” … and that’s the burning issue. Certified Angus Beef claims Beetle House did not purchase their product, and even if they did, Beetle was not authorized to use the brand name.
The company says it wants Beetle House to remove all references to its products from its menus.
Beetle House Owner Zach Neil says he initially thought the legal threat was a joke. He claims his restaurant bought real CAB products, but will stop doing so in the future.
Zach calls the ACR beef “part of what’s wrong with America right now. People are dying, restaurants are failing, these guys are threatening the very people who buy their products. That is. really sad.”
A CAB representative told TMZ … “We take the certified part of our name to heart and have a system in place to track our beef so that those who buy our beef really promote it. system does not show NYC Beetle House is purchasing a product, although we fully recognize that we may be missing this important information.
We recognize our restaurant partners – and all food services are going through extremely difficult times. Our intention was, and still is, to simply support the restaurant community that buy our beef and market it; so as not to provoke ill will. “
