TORONTO – Regular patrons of Subway restaurant were ‘delighted’ by the results of a CBC Marketplace investigation released last week that revealed that some of the food chain’s sandwiches contained just 50% chicken DNA.
“Half of it is chicken? Really? That’s amazing!” said graduate student Marissa Schlom, whose diet consists largely of Subway, instant ramen and food truck poutine. “That’s way more than what I thought it would be.”
Although Subway spokesman Kevin Kane initially denied the allegations, he has since embraced them, citing the company’s aim to always ‘exceed customers’ expectations.’
At press time, seeking to capitalize on the news, Burger King updated its website with the information that its beef patties are also ‘50% chicken.’
