Subway is looking for a whole lotta bread from CBC for a report that suggested roughly half of the fast-food chain’s chicken wasn’t, in fact, chicken.
Subway has filed a lawsuit seeking $210-million in damages against the CBC after a Marketplace report aired that alleged close to 50% of the chicken it uses in sandwiches is actually soy.
“Despite our efforts to share the facts with the CBC about the high quality of our chicken and to express our strong objections to their inaccurate claims, they have not issued a retraction, as we requested,” Subway said in a Thursday statement, according to the New York Post. “Serving high-quality food to our customers is our top priority, and we are committed to seeing that this factually incorrect report is corrected.”
