Subway defends its chicken

Subway defends its chicken

That comes after a Canadian Broadcasting Corp. show reported that tests showed only about half the DNA from Subway chicken samples was from chicken. Subway quickly ran its own laboratory tests and responded.

CBC's "Marketplace" news program recently had a DNA lab analyze chicken products from multiple fast food chains.

Last week, Subway told the CBC that Subway Canada "cannot confirm the veracity of the results of the lab testing you had conducted".

Veteran D Streit traded twice, lands with Penguins
Weal is eligible to play in the playoffs for the minor league side since he was sent down before the end of the trade deadline. Streit has compiled five goals and 16 assists in 49 games while averaging over 19 minutes of ice time per contest.

Further, Kane says Subway sent samples of the same Canadian chicken products to labs in both Canada and Florida, both of which found soy protein levels of less than 1% in the samples. The first four samples were about 85 to 90 percent chicken, which is reasonable - the composition also includes spices and sugars added for taste, although those numbers are still lower than what the companies promise in advertising.

The study reveals that only 50 percent of the contents of Subway sandwiches contains chicken DNA and the rest is just soy filler. - AP " The stunningly flawed test by Marketplace is a tremendous disservice to our customers. Producing high quality food for our customers is our highest priority. A&W's Chicken Grill Deluxe contained an average of 89.4 percent chicken DNA; McDonald's Country Chicken Grilled, 84.9 percent; Tim Hortons' Chipotle Chicken Grilled Wrap, 86.5 percent; and Wendy's Grilled Chicken Sandwich, 88.5 percent.

CBC stood by its test results, and publicly posted all six pages on its website.

Hostility To Immigrants Breeds 'Constant State of Fear,' Advocates Say
Vargas's arrest "was a real shock to people", he adds-not only those in the immigrant community, but to other groups as well. However, he did say that the memo calls for the hiring of 10,000 more ICE agents in the next year to begin more actions.

Subway is fighting back against claims its chicken has less actual chicken in it than other restaurants.

Subway says a media report claiming its chicken is half soy is "wildly inaccurate".

Subway's chicken breast strips, according to its online listing of ingredients, include: "Boneless skinless chicken breast with rib meat, water, contains 2% or less soy protein concentrate, modified potato starch, sodium phosphate, potassium chloride, salt, maltodextrin, yeast extract, flavors, natural flavors, dextrose, caramelized sugar, paprika, vinegar solids, paprika extract, chicken broth".

Manufacturing Sector Expanded in February
Inventories of raw materials also got a boost in February, rising above the 50% threshold to 51.5%. Including the PMI, three of the report's other key metrics were up in January.
