Second Lab test confirms Subway’s tuna sub doesn’t have any tuna in it

Look away if you’re a Subway fan as a second lab DNA report has confirmed that Subway’s Tuna Sub doesn’t actually contain tuna.

Which makes you wonder: what exactly is in there?

Well, the good news is that it’s fish. It’s definitely fish. But the lab report from the New York Times couldn’t identify what sort of fish.

They tested “60 inches worth of Subway Tuna Sandwiches” from three different LA shops. And found that not only could they not find any tuna DNA, but they couldn’t identify any one species of fish.


A lab spokesperson said there were two conclusions.

“One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an identification. Or we got some and there’s just nothing there that’s tuna.”

The tuna row started back in January when two Californian customers filed a lawsuit claiming the products are ‘made from anything but tuna.’

Since then, there have been a number of investigations into just what goes into a Subway Tuna sub.

Huge whale found washed up on Jebel Ali Beach

Staying with fishy news, a whale weighing 15 tonnes and stretching over 12 metres has been found dead and washed up on a beach in Jebel Ali.

The animal has been identified as a male Bryde’s whale and has now been recovered from Jebel Ali.

An autopsy has been carried out on the whale, but it seems to have died of natural causes. There was no clear evidence of ‘ship strikes’ or ‘marine debris.’

The Bryde whale is relatively rare globally but is often found in the Arabian Gulf and Sea. And the autopsy is being done to help understand the ‘condition and ecology of this species in the region.’
