Subway, the fast food chain, has filed a lawsuit seeking $210-million in damages against the CBC after a Marketplace report aired that alleged close to 50% of the chicken it uses in sandwiches is actually soy.
“Despite our efforts to share the facts with the CBC about the high quality of our chicken and to express our strong objections to their inaccurate claims, they have not issued a retraction, as we requested,” Subway said in a Thursday statement, according to the New York Post. “Serving high-quality food to our customers is our top priority, and we are committed to seeing that this factually incorrect report is corrected.”
The Post report said the CBC has been notified of the lawsuit but has not received a copy of it.
“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 the Post.
