Subway says it is suing the CBC over its allegation that 50% of the fast food chain’s chicken was made from soybeans. CBC Marketplace last month said DNA analysis found that Subway’s oven roasted chicken was just 53.6% chicken on average and the chicken strips were found to be made of just 42.8% chicken on average, the rest being soybeans. A spokesperson from Subway confirmed to Fortune magazine that the company has issued a Note of Action in Canada against the CBC that asks for $210 million in damages over the Marketplace allegations, which it called “defamatory and absolutely false.” Subway says the report was “factually incorrect.”
