Subway is Being Sued For Fake Tuna

Something is fishy about Subway according to two California residents but it isn’t the tuna. Plaintiffs Karen Dhanowa & Nilima Amin used their attorney to slam Subway’s tuna sandwich as “anything but tuna.Claiming to have made the discovery while doing an independent lab test that studied “multiple samples” from Subway’s California locations. They went on asserting that the “tuna” is “a mixture of of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna.” They have not divulged what they believe the true recipe is but did express disgust in their filings saying we “were tricked into buying food items that wholly lacked the ingredients they reasonably thought they were purchasing.”

They also accused Subway of “saving substantial sums of money in manufacturing the products because the fabricated ingredient they use in the place of tuna cost less money.” The duo is hoping to get their complaint approved as a class action in order to welcome other Subway consumers in the state according to The Washington Post.

Their franchises website describes the sandwich as “flaked tuna in brine” a company spokesperson told The Post that the depiction is current.
