Other fast-food chicken sandwiches tested by Marketplace at Trent University’s Wildlife Forensic DNA Lab stacked up more favorably, sparking the ire of Subway. As a rebuttal, the company sent its chicken to two independent labs -- one in Canada and another in Florida -- and surprise, “the results from both labs found soy protein below 10 ppm, or less than 1%, in all tested samples.”
Subway has asked for a retraction of the study and an apology to go along with it. So far, the CBC hasn’t removed the story, and appears intent on leaving it be. Clearly, we’re fast approaching a ChickenGate level scandal.
