Subway Chicken Is Only 50% Chicken

MIAMI, FL - OCTOBER 21:  A Subway sandwich is seen in a restaurant as the company announced a settlement over a class-action lawsuit that alleged that Subway engaged in deceptive marketing for its 6-inch and 12-inch sandwiches and served customers less food than they were paying for on October 21, 2015 in Miami, Florida. While it denies the claims, Subway said that franchisees would be required to have a measurement tool in stores to make sure loaves are 12-inches.  (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)

In our never ending quest to eat healthy and also eat cheaply many fast food places have chicken options. Obviously they're still not THE healthiest thing you could be eating but at least it's not covered in grease, right?

Plenty of people opt for Subway's chicken as their healthy option. It turns out that the all white meat grilled chicken they've been enjoying is only 50% chicken. 

According to the study reported in the Times Union:

"Canadian news network CBC recently DNA-tested the chicken at several fast food restaurants and was stunned to discover that the Subway chicken had just 50 percent chicken DNA."


If that's the case, what have we been eating? The rest must be made of some kind of chicken by product and other things. 

Just in case you were wondering they also tested McDonald's and Wendy's chicken. They both came in at over 80% real chicken.
