Lawsuit claims Subway’s tuna isn’t tuna or even fish at all

Lawsuit claims Subway’s tuna isn’t tuna or even fish at all

The food chain is now facing a lawsuit claiming that their tuna salad sandwiches and wraps include a "mixture of various concoctions" instead of real fish.

Dhanowa and Amin had samples from several California restaurants analysed and the filling was determined to be "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.

In response, Subway said through a representative, "Tuna is one of our most popular sandwiches". The lawsuit accuses Subway of fraud, intentional and negligent misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.

The attorney told the Post the ingredients not only were not tuna but also "not fish".

The two women from the United States have filed a lawsuit against the brand after buying tuna melts from one of their branches that they claim were not up to scratch.

The two plaintiffs, who were identified as Karen Dhanowa and Nilima Amin, filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, The Washington Post reports. The fast-food giant denied the claims on Friday, writing, "There is simply no truth to the allegations in the complaint that was filed in California".

According to nutritional information on the chain's website, Subway's tuna salad is made with flaked tuna in brine, mayonnaise and calcium disodium, an additive to protect flavor.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time Subway has been in the news for this type of mock-food fodder. Ireland's Supreme Court in September ruled that the bread Subway uses in its sandwiches could not legally be called bread because of its high sugar content.

Subway has been part of other odd lawsuits, including one claiming the footlong was not actually a foot long.
