Fuck Subway.
You're exaggerating. First off, most commercial bread has wood fiber (cellulose, look for it) and sugar. Second, the DNA testing for the tuna + chicken was probably garbage.
Only slightly.

Subway got in trouble for the wood fiber previously. Got nailed by a Euro court who said their bread had too much sugar to be legally called bread.

Then the chicken failed a DNA test.

Now the tuna.

Fuck Subway.

In Ireland. How often do you buy ice cream that it actually says "ice cream" instead of something like "frozen dessert"?

Because cooked proteins don't DNA test properly.

I'll not completely break up with Subway. I won't have a relationship with it, but a couple times a year I'll call it for a booty call.

I always look out for that bullshit. I will not buy "frozen dessert" or anything like that.

I am aware. I am also aware that there are some things you don't need DNA tests to prove and no other chain seems to get this sort of attention.

I am also acutely aware of how the corporate world operates and if there's a way to give us something cheaper, they will, even if it means we might get cancer.

And when anyone else gets in trouble for it, I will say fuck them too.

So you never get "cookies and cream" or any of those ice creams with other things added? Your poor kids!

Someone picked on Subway, with bad science.

Taco Bell did.

I think lawyers often look for paydays. If they can get a settlement or class action, they're set.

Cookies and cream anything is fucking gross.

We tend to feed our kids in a healthy manner. We'd prefer they don't get diabetes. :D

Multiple times and from multiple sources in multiple countries.

Depends on the percentage. Has McDonald's lost the ability to call their burgers "burgers" in court?
GORDON wrote: Wed Jul 07, 2021 3:13 pmTaco Bell did.
Rightly so. Although, I think the "reasonable expectation" defense of Yobagoya was based on Taco Bell's earlier days.

"I can eat like a king for $3 at Taco Bell!"

There's a reason for that, and have you noticed those days are over?

.... but the lawsuit was dropped after it was determined the taco bell accusations were bullshit?

And TB low-key became the healthiest fast food out there, during that time:

Kids can eat most anything as long as there's enough vitamins in there, and they aren't getting fat.

American children would disagree. Little chubbers are everywhere.

Courts have determined the science to be correct in at least Denmark. (Can't call it bread.)

Anti-vaxer or racist. (Whichever one is funnier.)

I don't know that I even remember that case. I remember Taco Bell using the lowest grades of beef (but it was still beef) and other ingredients.

I'm actually fine with fast food places taking shortcuts and using less expensive ingredients as filler as long as its FDA approved and they're honest about it.

Again, "reasonable expectations". Yobagoya! (Fuck you for not getting that reference. Gordon should have...)

I said "can eat most anything as long as [...] they aren't getting fat.

If they're getting fat, they need to eat something else.

I've known some women like that.

Also, I thought Ruxin's "reasonable expectation" defense for Yobagoya was quite brilliant. It's the same logic anyone should use eating fast food. "I feel like shit or have to shit. That's what I get for eating that garbage."
