Subway Under Fire For Iffy Tuna Sandwiches

Buckle up, because this could be experienced as a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for the hardcore Subway fans out there. Or maybe, as a ride or die Subway aficionado, you've long since come to terms with Subway's decorated past. And not the good kind of decorated past. In this case though, we're dealing with something particularly fishy. Yep, it's the tuna. Or rather, we wouldn't be right if we were to call it tuna. 

Apparently, a study conducted by journalist, Julia Carmel, at the New York Times ended up revealing that of the 60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches that were collected, and then shipped off to a lab, no "amplifiable" tuna DNA was obtained. So, basically what is actually in those tuna sandwiches? Of course, Subway shrugged off all that investigative business and insisted that they're actually serving tuna sandwiches. 

There is a potential counterargument to be made that the NYT only tested 5 of the 15 species of nomadic saltwater fish. So, they might've missed something. Also, apparently the cooking process could be impacting the legitimacy of being able to obtain accurate results for when the Subway tuna is tested for tuna DNA. Even then though. Come on, Subway. While we're at it, it also turns out that Subway's flour recipe contains 10% sugar. If it seemed like their bread was uncharacteristically sweet, now you know why.

    Food - www.subway.com tacebook.com/sbwy t om/subway AJ+ @ajplus ... Subway tuna sandwiches do not contain any tuna DNA, say lab tests commissioned by @nytimes. 2 customers are suing saying its sandwiches have no tuna, which the company denies. Last year, an Irish court ruled Subway bread has too much sugar to be legally considered bread. SUBWAY eat fresh. tresh:

    Font - Merrill Markoe ... @Merrillmarkoe Let's focus on some GOOD news: From what I have been reading, I think it's safe to assume that Subway turkey sandwiches are 77% tuna.

    Font - MrDoctor939 @MDoctor366 Replying to @ajplus and @nytimes Okay, the bread thing is weird, and while technically other fish can be mixed up with tuna (usually escargot), it is incredibly uncommon for NONE of it to be tuna. Something fishy is going on here...
