Subway says lab tests it commissioned show its chicken had only trace amounts of soy.
The defense came after a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. that showed lab tests found only half of the DNA in several Subway chicken sandwiches came from chicken while around half was soy, the New York Post reported.
The sandwich chain, which has become one of the world's most popular fast-food brands over recent years, has vowed to look into the matter.
Subway is fighting back against claims its chicken has less actual chicken in it than other restaurants.
United States dollar rises on Fed officials' comments
Buttressing that idea: Payrolls are growing well in excess of what Fed officials reckon is sustainable in the long run. If the forecast is right, the upgrade may boost confidence that the Fed is considering a rate hike in March.
Days after a report stated that about half of the oven-roasted chicken patties used by Subway was made with real chicken, the sandwich company refuted the findings. The majority of the remaining DNA was that of soy protein.
"The stunningly flawed test by Marketplace is a tremendous disservice to our customers", Subway President and CEO Suzanne Greco said. Subway quickly ran its own laboratory tests and responded.
The CBC also clarified part of its study, stating that "DNA tests don't reveal an exact percentage of the amount of chicken in the whole piece, but DNA experts have told Marketplace that the testing is a good indicator of the proportion of animal and plant DNA in the product".
On Wednesday, a Subway spokesperson more emphatically rejected the CBC's claims.
"These findings are consistent with the low levels of soy protein that we add with the spices and marinade to keep the products moist and flavorful", Kane said. Subway then conducted their own study with two independent laboratories and found that their chicken contains less one percent soy.
There were comparative studies from samples from other four food stores, and they qualified the test. McDonald's chicken dish contained 84.9 percent chicken DNA, while A&W's Chicken Grill Delus had 89.4 percent chicken.
CBC stood by its test results, posting the six page report for all to see on its site. However the ingredient list it forwarded to CBC News lists soy protein as a constituent of the chicken.
