Subway is suing the CBC for defamation after Canada’s public broadcaster aired a report claiming their DNA tests found some Subway chicken products are only about 50 per cent actual chicken. In a statement of claim, Subway accuses the CBC of acting recklessly and maliciously in airing their report back in February on Marketplace. Subway says the report has caused significant sales losses and damage to its brand. The CBC has said the tests were done by independent and credible experts. Subway alleges the tests conducted on the chicken “lacked scientific rigour.” The allegations have not been proven in court.
