In the United States, a recent survey showed that the most famous Subway sandwiches are the turkey and tuna sandwich.

Subway Tuna Class Action Details
Filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, the class action filed against Subway accuses the company of not using actual tuna in its tuna sandwich product.
The lawsuit argues that tuna used in the Subway tuna sandwich, which is supposed to be the star of the show, is made up of a whole range of other ingredients combined to pass off as the real deal.
As the official filing’s digest says, the tuna used in Subway’s tuna sandwich is just a “mixture of concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together [by Subway] to imitate the appearance of tuna.”
Yet, the plaintiffs to the case have failed to disclose the actual nature of this alleged mystery concoction of products used in substitute for real tuna in the sandwiches.
A senior official of Subway released an official statement brushing off the allegations and reassuring the public that their establishments only use tuna and other fresh produce in their products.
The class action lawsuit seeks to hold Subway liable for fraud, intentional misrepresentation, and unjust enrichment. It also alleges that the company has violated the state of California statutes and federal laws.
Founded as “Pete’s Super Submarines”, named after its founder, Subway has grown into a fast-food chain mammoth with more than 40,000 locations.
With its official company motto “Eat Fresh,” Subway is showing its relentless commitment to providing only the freshest ingredients in their product offerings, particularly its popular sandwich line.
The company is headed by its CEO John Chidsey.
