Breaking: Subway Tuna Doesn’t Actually Contain Any Tuna (Allegedly)



Oh my. Just a few months after Subway was accused of their bread not actually being bread, the chain sees itself in yet another food controversy. This time? It’s the tuna.

Karen Dhanowa and Nilima Amin of California’s Alameda County recently filed a lawsuit accusing the restaurant franchise of misrepresenting its tuna sandwich. The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges Subway’s tuna is “made from anything but tuna.”

The suit claims “the filling in the products has no scintilla of tuna at all.” Based on independent lab tests of “multiple samples” taken from Subway locations in California, the “tuna” is “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna,” according to the complaint. One of the attorneys for the plaintiffs however declined to say exactly what the ingredients were that the lab tests revealed.

A Subway spokesperson called the claims “baseless” and “frivolous” adding that they “are being pursued without adequate investigation.”

“There simply is no truth to the allegations in the complaint that was filed in California,” the company said in a statement. “Subway delivers 100% 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.”
