A recent report from CBC revealed that Subway’s chicken is not exactly what it seems. A DNA lab analyzed the popular fast-food chains poultry and discovered that more than 50% of the meat was soy.
One Subway customer wasn’t pleased with the news, but he’s still not removing the sandwich shops chicken from his diet anytime soon.
“It’s just really hard to cut chicken out of my meal,” he said. “It’s really the only meat I like to eat.”
Another customer shared this sentiment, and said he won’t stop eating Subway’s chicken. However he did mention that the news has made him consider alternative places to get his meat content.
Subway’s results were such an outlier that the team analyzing the meat decided to test them again five more times. The results came back with numbers around 54% chicken DNA, and as low as just 43%.
Despite this news, some customers enjoy the taste, and that’s all that matters to them.
“I’m going to continue getting it,” one man said as he sat down ready to eat his foot-long chicken breast sandwich. “I love how it tastes, and that report didn’t really bother me.”
Subway said in a statement that they disagree with these results, and that their recipe calls for 1% or less of soy protein in their chicken products.
