The controversy of Subway menu
Subway has been making headlines because of its menu items — and not for good reasons. Back in October 2020, the Irish Supreme Court ruled that Subway’s rolls used for hot sandwiches should not be considered as actual bread items, BBC News reports.
- The court said Subway’s bread has a high amount of sugar, which disqualifies the bread from being actual bread, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
A recent lawsuit from California residents Karen Dhanowa and Nilima Amin called Subway’s tuna into question. As the Deseret News reported, the two residents sued Subway for fraud, intentional misrepresentation and unjust enrichment after saying there’s no real tuna inside Subway’s tuna.
- The New York Times and a lab collaborated on analysis to review the meat, too. The lab found that the meat had no real origin. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read, according to Complex.
