A DNA testing of chicken sold at Subway restaurantsin Canada revealed that two of the chain’s popular sandwiches contain poultry that’s only part meat, according a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation report.
A DNA researcher from Ontario’s Trent University analyzed six grilled chicken sandwiches from fast food chains for the CBC’s Marketplaceprogramand found that while most sandwichesfrom chains including McDonald’s, Wendy’sand A&Wcontained “very close” to 100% chicken, the Subway products fell woefully short.
The chain’soven roasted chicken tested as 53.6% chicken DNA, CBC reported,while strips of its sweet onion chicken teriyaki registered as 42.8% chicken DNA.
While straight-from-the-store chicken should test at 100%, adding seasoning or marinating chicken would necessarily bring that number down. (Wendy’s grilled chicken sandwich, for example, tested at 88.5% chicken DNA.)
