Subway seeks $210M in damages from CBC over Trent-based chicken sandwich report

March 21, 2017

Subway has filed a lawsuit against the CBC seeking $210M in damages after a Marketplace report stated that 50% of the chicken used in the restaurant’s sandwiches is actually soy. Postmedia reports that CBC has been notified of the lawsuit but has not received a copy of it in writing. The Marketplace report drew its conclusions based on DNA testing performed by the Wildlife Forensic DNA Laboratory at Trent University. “We believe our journalism to be sound and there is no evidence that we’ve seen that would lead us to change our position,” a CBC spokeswoman told Postmedia.
