from The Blaze:
A recent investigation into poultry sold at major fast-food restaurants in Canada suggests that Subway’s chicken could be more accurately named “only about half chicken.”
Last month, DNA researcher Matt Harnden, who works at Trent University’s Wildlife Forensic DNA Laboratory, tested the DNA of the poultry from six popular fast-food chicken sandwiches at five different restaurants.
Two of those chicken sandwiches were from Subway, and results indicated that both of the menu items only contained about 50 percent chicken DNA.
For illustrative purposes, a piece of packaged, plain raw chicken at the store should register as 100 percent chicken DNA. Once a piece of chicken is marinaded, seasoned and processed, that number starts to decrease, so the expectation for any fast food chicken breast wouldn’t be a 100 percent result. Even taking that into consideration, Subway’s results were disturbingly low, especially when compared to other fast food restaurants.
