Lawsuit Filed Against Subway For Selling Fake Tuna Fish

Subway Restaurants is selling tuna wraps and sandwiches that do not contain any actual tuna fish, according to a proposed class-action lawsuit.

Instead, the “’tuna’ is a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by [Subway] to imitate the appearance of tuna,” according to the lawsuit filed on 21 January in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Legal Newsline reported.

Howerver, plaintiffs Karen Dhanowa and Nilima Amin do not specify what the mystery meat contains.

“Defendants have engaged in economic adulteration by selling a food product that partially or wholly lacked the valuable constituents of tuna, and that had been substituted in part or whole,” according to the lawsuit.“Defendants have further committed unlawful adulteration by concealing the inferiority of the products.”

Bridgeport, Connecticut, U.S.A.-based Subway operates nearly 45,000 restaurants in several countries.

In a prepared statement sent by a company spokesperson on 28 January, the company called the claims made in the lawsuit “meritless.”

“Tuna is one of our most popular sandwiches,” the spokesperson said. “Our restaurants receive pure tuna, mix it with mayonnaise and serve on a freshly made sandwich to our guests.”
