Subway Sued For Allegedly Making "Concoctions" To Imitate Tuna
A new lawsuit filed in Northern California alleges that Subway has not been making their tuna sandwiches out of tuna at all, instead actually using “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna,” according to The Washington Post. Apparently, the individual who filed the lawsuit had multiple independent lab tests done, which supposedly revealed that Subway blended together multiple “concoctions” to imitate tuna.
Subway representatives have claimed that the lawsuit has no merit and that their tuna is legitimate. Subway refutes these claims in a statement given to The Washington Post, stating, “There simply is no truth to the allegations in the complaint that was filed in California. Subway delivers 100 percent cooked tuna to its restaurants, which is mixed with mayonnaise and used in freshly made sandwiches, wraps and salads that are served to and enjoyed by our guests. The taste and quality of our tuna make it one of Subway’s most popular products and these baseless accusations threaten to damage our franchisees, small business owners who work tirelessly to uphold the high standards that Subway sets for all of its products, including its tuna.”
