BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It's been a long few months for Subway's tuna sandwiches. A class-action lawsuit in California accused the national sandwich chain of faking the tuna in its tuna sandwiches in January, touching off ad campaigns from competitors and even a shout-out from Jessica Simpson.
Now, a new report out by the New York Times actually did the legwork to send the contents of a Subway tuna sandwich off to a lab to be tested. The results?
"No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample," goes the lab. Now this could just mean that the DNA was too badly damaged to be read, and other reporters have come back with a tuna-positive result.
"Kinda sounds like school lunches, right?" said Alicia from Framingham. Plaintiffs in the lawsuit in California have since been rolling back their argument, instead arguing that the tuna is not sustainable, like the company claims.
None of this bothers Susan from Natick:
"Well.. if it tastes good..." she said.
