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."
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
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?
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.
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.
