Update: Subway has issued a statement in response to the Marketplace report refuting its claims. The chain retained two independent laboratories to test the disputed product in Canada and the United States; the results of Subway's test found soy protein below 10 ppm—less than 1 percent—in all test samples. Subway has sent these results to Marketplace. "The stunningly flawed test by Marketplace is a tremendous disservice to our customers," said Subway President and CEO Suzanne Greco. "The safety, quality and integrity of our food is the foundation of our business. That's why we took extra caution to test and retest the chicken. Our customers can have confidence in our food. The allegation that our chicken is only 50 percent chicken is 100 percent wrong." Read our follow-up story on Subway chicken here.
