A recent study conducted by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has found that the sandwich chain’s chicken meat contains about only about 50 percent chicken DNA — or about half as much as fresh chicken from a supermarket.

The chicken in your Subway chicken sandwich might not contain very much chicken meat at all.

A recent study conducted by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has found that the sandwich chain’s chicken meat contains about only about 50 percent chicken DNA — or about half as much as fresh chicken from a supermarket.

The findings were part of a larger survey examining chicken items from several different fast food chains that operate in Canada, including Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Tim Hortons and A&W– but it was Subway’s results that were most surprising to researchers, Fox 5 San Diego reports.

In the tests, most of the meat from Subway’s competitors was shown to contain 85 to 90 percent chicken DNA, but Subway’s oven roasted chicken registered at just 53.6 percent. Its chicken strips scored even lower, containing just 42.8 percent chicken DNA.

  1. Those heart shaped crumbed chicken schnitzels from supermarkets are also not chicken but an alloy of different materials then pureed and pressed into heart shapes.
    Don’t buy them from the supermarkets.

    • In New Zealand, the campylobacter capital of the world, you take your life in your hands by buying chicken from the supermarket. They say you can kill campylobacter by cooking it properly, but believe me, my friends, this is not true.

  2. HAHAHA! I am SO surprised! NOT! Who in the world is still running through the doors of a Subway Restaurant? I thought that after they weren’t too particular about who they got for a spokesperson that they would be next to folding by now. I guess associations with pedophiles aren’t enough to hurt business, but maybe this will, eh? LMAO!!

    It would seem that I’m not the only one who is not eating meat…I mean…there are those who are at least not eating much meat thanks to Subway’s half chicken/half huh? sandwich. I just cannot stop laughing over this one!

    • LOL, Shelby. You have a wicked sense of humor pointing out Subway’s involuntary conversion of meat eaters to vegetarians. I don’t know about the US, but here in the US, Subway is promoted as the “healthy” fast food alternative.

      • LMAO! It is promoted the same here Dr. Bramhall because of all of those veggies on the sandwich and now because we know that there ain’t much antibiotic injected meat on the sandwich either. LOL!

  3. Oh man! I worked for subway back in the 1980’s. They were ahead of their time offering turkey based lean meats instead of beef. The quality was always amazing. I’ll admit that the Jared fiasco is disgusting, but I have to say I was always impressed that they never compromised on quality. Just my personal experience. 🙂

  4. It’s always sad, isn’t it Marie, when you see big names get so big they start compromising quality for profit. Thanks for commenting.

    Not overly surprised. Wonder what’s in other meat in their and other restaurant chain entrees. Soylent Green, anyone?

  6. LOL, Rick. I think it’s a really good sign to see so many people waking up and showing concern about what’s in their food and where it comes from.
