Lab says Subway chicken isn’t, Subway claims ‘Is, too’

“A recent study conducted by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has found that the sandwich chain's chicken meat contains about only about 50 percent chicken DNA — or about half as much as fresh chicken from a supermarket.”

(For the math challenged, the claim that 50 percent is “about half as much as fresh chicken” might come as a surprise.)

Subway says it uses “only 100 percent white meat chicken in their chicken products,” but did admit to “using soy as a stabilizer.” Hmm. Is Subway saying its chicken sandwich is 100 percent chicken, except for the soy stabilizer? No. Subway says the chicken in the chicken sandwich is 100 percent chicken. Except for the soy stabilizer. In PR and roadblocking, that is known as an honest statement. Which says a lot about PR.

Fake news, real news? Who knows? Somebody is telling the truth, so somebody else is lying? Well, yes and no. You know Canadian Broadcasting Corp. is less than friendly toward corporate foods, especially American corporate foods. And you equally know Subway spends big bucks to head off and deflect bad press.
