The tuna was frozen and sent out to the lab, which determined "no amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species," according to the Times...

The lab determined two potential reasons why no tuna was detected in the sample, saying, "One it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an identification … Or we got some and there’s just nothing there that’s tuna."

first, if its NOT tuna, what IS it?

in fairness, fish is fragile, and its probly frozen and processed a fair amount to keep safe.

is it worth it?
will people stop buying them now?
what's in other companies tuna? I think most tuna sandwiches are small independent sub / sandwich shops that probly by tuna in #10 cans so presumably okay.

do we feel safe with other meats and cheeses in our sandwiches?

Don't eat that crap! There's no excuse as it's not even inexpensive anymore. For the price of a "tuna" sandwich you could get real food that will last you way longer and is way healthier. I remember a story years ago that claimed there was "yoga mat" stuff in the bread to keep it spongy and fresh. Nothing would surprise me these days.

The question remains though, if it's not tuna then wtf is it?

Yeah I saw this earlier today and it kind of weirded me out.

I used to get their tuna subs at least once a week before the pandemic.

I always thought that they were good, but I won’t get it ever again now.

Haven’t had Subway in many years. Back then it was slightly above eating straight out of the garbage. Had a friend in college that did an internship with them and he said all of their meat was turkey based so they could claim the caloric and nutritional values.

I’ve read this before and then had found this video.

Was it a marketing strategy to get more people to buy the tuna sammie?

Inside edition did their own investigation and the results came back that it was tuna.


Will some say it’s all fake and they are quickly trying to cover it up? Will we ever know the true truth? Should we go get a tuna sammie and send it off to the lab to test it ourselves?

I bet it's escolar, just like any average sushi shop uses. They didn't say it wasn't fish, it just isn't "tuna", which could be quite a few different fish anyways.

For a company that has “sub” in the name you’d think this would’ve been an easy catch

A comparable substitute from the sea. It's a pretty common practice at the fish market.

It would be good for someone to do comparative tests in different nations.

The US always weirded many of us in the UK and also the EU out due to it's food standards being very low and unhygienic by comparison, for example you have rules on how many insect parts you can have per a certain amount of Chocolate but we come at it in the UK from the opposite direction in that we don't want to find ANY insect part's, oh we know they are there but.

Rat Faces is another.

Also our food standards agency and environmental health do periodic - perhaps not regular enough but periodic - check's on our fast food industry, it does not matter if it is a large or a small company they will check under fridges, behind bin's, the food in the fridge and even take take samples for analysis with heavy fines and even closures should sites fail to meet there strict standards.

This video is from Wales but despite our devolved government system the rules are pretty much the same from the bottom to the top of the UK and so are the standards barring a few minor variation's.

Despite this some do fall through the crack's and by comparison some EU nations have even stricter policys.

This is one reason people got worked up over the recent Australian trade deal as the food standards down in Australia are a bit lower - despite us basically being mostly the same people so it was not against the Aussies just concern over food standards - and also the US with it's chlorine washed chicken (which may cause cancer and is about keeping OLD chicken fresh longer) etc.

I suspect a quick laboratory analysis would show variations in the quality of for example a Subway or a MacDonald's or a Burger King between here and the States as well as between the States and EU Nations, now what would be interesting about that is if we caught out some of those company's not abiding by the rules of the nation in which they were operating and if that would lead to hefty fines or just as usually a slap on the wrist.

Better make it yourself though as always, you know were you got the ingredients, you know what you put into it and while it may not be as convenient it can be tailored exactly to your own preferences.


Sorry that video won't display but I will leave it up in case any of you want to see it on youtube itself.
Here is an alternative but far more about dirty fast food places video from the UK.

And another in case that won't show (this is one restaurant you do not want to visit).


To be honest though watching this you could do with more such visits by regulators over in the US, I know it would be on a state by state basis but this site is just as bad.


I would say this though, eating fast food is like Russian roulette with your health.

No offense to you, but "Adam Ruins Everything" is high on the list of sources for skewed and/or unreliable information. That said, I admittedly didnt subject myself to the clip, and I dont disagree with what you're saying there.

To the point, why would anyone believe it's real tuna to begin with? Everything at subway is gross, processed, bagged, frozen, slimy crap. Seriously. Its gross. That tuna is sketch at best.

Doesn't surprise me.. Subway has always been low quality, and bland. I mean there was a conspiracy that fast food joints were bulking their food with sawdust lol

Perfect sandwich filling for their plastic bread.

I don't understand how Subway stays in business. Their sub's are all bread. There's nothing healthy about fast food joints, no matter who endorses them.

Quiznos knows how to stack a sub. Same for Jersey Mike's and every other place that makes sub's.

But if you really want a good sub, find a good hoagie bun and make your own sub.

I can't find a good hoagie sub roll. Did find a decent one at Aldis though.

I've worked in fast food and slow food places.

People are nasty and nasty people work in those places too.

And even after telling friends and family the things I've seen, they continue to eat out.

Reminds me of when taco bell beef was tested and found to only be 39% beef.

Just don't eat processed "Fast" food. Cheaper and healthier to eat at home. Don't tell me you don't got the time.

There are better places to go than Subway for a hoagie. I personally like going to little mom and pop spots, but Firehouse Subs is my go to if I want to get in and out real quick.

Hey did they ever find out what the nutritional benefits were for the Cicada Tacos?

Not that I'd eat one, just curious.
