Subway is a sandwich chain that we all know and hopefully love because how can you not love subway? You can make a sandwich with anything you want so unless you’re oddly picky and/or allergic to literally everything, you really cannot go wrong with subway sandwiches. Some people, however, are easily angered by everything and anything though! For example, Karen Dhanowa and Nilima Amin of San Francisco have filed a lawsuit against the sandwich chain over claims of fraud and false advertising in regards to their tuna salad.
Dhanowa and Amin claim that Subway is capitalizing on tuna that isn’t even real tuna. They had samples of the ‘tuna’ analyzed and they’ve claimed that it was “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna,” as stated in their complaint, but they don’t say what the ‘tuna’ was.
Subway responded by calling their claims “reckless” and that “the taste and quality of our tuna make it one of Subway’s most popular products and these baseless accusations threaten to damage our franchisees, small business owners who work tirelessly to uphold the high standards that Subway sets for all of its products, including its tuna”.
They’ve claimed that this is all part of a grand scheme to sue large fast-food restaurants to try and gain popularity among the public and treat these claims as practically “immediately dismissed”.
