This story really caught my attention because my favorite thing to order at Subway is: tuna on wheat with cheese, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, and salt & pepper.
So, as I was scrolling along looking for interesting pieces to share with you, I stopped on this and was like, “Noooooo.”
According to a new lawsuit, there’s not a bit of “tuna” in the tuna fish served by “Subway.”
Good Lord, what the heck have I been eating all these years?
Well, we’re not quite sure about WHAT it was, but the people who filed the lawsuit are sure that it wasn’t “tuna.”
Subway Restaurants is selling tuna wraps and sandwiches that do not contain any actual tuna fish, according to a proposed class-action lawsuit.
Instead, the “’tuna’ is a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by [Subway] to imitate the appearance of tuna,” according to the lawsuit filed on 21 January in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Legal Newsline reported.
Howerver, plaintiffs Karen Dhanowa and Nilima Amin do not specify what the mystery meat contains.
“Defendants have engaged in economic adulteration by selling a food product that partially or wholly lacked the valuable constituents of tuna, and that had been substituted in part or whole,” according to the lawsuit.“Defendants have further committed unlawful adulteration by concealing the inferiority of the products.”
Well, I guess the one glimmer of hope is that Subway is flatly denying these claims.
The company spox wrote a prepared statement calling claims listed in the lawsuit, “meritless.”
“Tuna is one of our most popular sandwiches,” the spokesperson said. “Our restaurants receive pure tuna, mix it with mayonnaise and serve on a freshly made sandwich to our guests.”
Let’s hope that’s true – but wasn’t it recently discovered that Subway used the same ingredients as what’s in yoga mats, for their bread?
I think I just need to make my own sandwiches from here on out!
