even a supplier can do different variations of their product to meet the restaurant's need. Therefore, death_hawk could be right.

They're being sued apparently. Does this mean Canadian tax payers have to foot the legal bill? I hope Subway gets counter sued and face boycotts even further from consumers. What a bunch of jackasses.

Do they realise Canada is not part of Namaraca? If i'm not mistaking the largest libel award in Canadian history was something like $6 million. In the US they can pull numbers out of their asses...here they'll have to prove they lost 210M in profits and since this ordeal is only a few weeks old they got a pretty good crystal ball.

I don't care as much about CBC defending their side than Subway throwing their weight around like a bully, clogging up our court system...which is already stretched thin enough.

And of course, Subway would have changed their chicken for the stuff they had their own testing done on...

Maybe anyone eating there for the next little while will get actual quality chicken.

No Subway is safe or reliable in Toronto, not even the TTC.

probably same issue the nuggets had when someone tested those

50% was meat, other 50% was a mix of bones, cartilage, skin, etc.

They did DNA testing, so that would show 100% chicken DNA if it was in fact only chicken.

Just watched a bit of another investigation on restaurant cleanliness. We all know restaurants be it a 5 star establishment or a fast food joint they all cut corners and sanitary regiments take a back seat to profit and expediency.

Or how about we let the courts decide?

If CBC published false or misleading information about a company, they should lose in court and pay damages. I'm absolutely pissed that me and the other canadian taxpayers will have to pay the bill if that's the case, but there absolutely needs to be legal recourse to libel which causes real damages.

If Subway is selling something that's 50% chicken, bringing it to court and losing will absolutely destroy their business.
