U.S. confirms avian influenza in Tennessee chicken flock

U.S. confirms avian influenza in Tennessee chicken flock(Reuters) – A strain of bird flu has been detected in a commercial chicken breeder flock in Tennessee’s Lincoln County and the 73,500 birds will be culled to prevent the virus from entering the food system, U.S. and state agriculture officials said on Sunday. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said this represented the first confirmed case of highly pathogenic H7 avian influenza (HPAI) in commercial poultry in the United States this year. The facility has been placed under quarantine, along with approximately 30 other poultry farms within a 6.2-mile (10 km)radius of the site, the Tennessee state government said.

Subway swears its chicken is chicken and releases its own study

Subway swears its chicken is chicken and releases its own studyThe subway chicken war isn't over. A poultry analysis of various fast food restaurants from CBC
Marketplace last week found that Subway's chicken may actually contain less chicken DNA than one would hope. Obviously, Subway wasn't too pleased with this study, and after releasing multiple statements disputing the report and demanding the piece be retracted, it released its own study. The original CBC report conducted by Matt Harnden, a researcher at Trent University's Wildlife Forensic DNA Laboratory, found that the chicken used in some of Subway's wraps and sandwiches contains less than 50 percent chicken DNA, with the remaining majority being soy. Of the six sandwiches tested from various restaurants, Subway's oven roasted chicken and chicken strips were the worst offenders.  SEE ALSO: Taco Bell ditched the Naked Chicken Chalupa, so here's how to make your own “The stunningly flawed test by
Marketplace is a tremendous disservice to our customers,” said Suzanne Greco, Subway president and chief executive, in a statement issued to the
Washington Post Wednesday night. “The allegation that our chicken is only 50 percent chicken is 100 percent wrong.” So Subway released its own study conducted by two independent laboratories in order to test the chicken from Canada, the
Post reports. The Subway studies evaluated the soy protein in the chicken samples, and found the plant protein to be less than 1 percent of the sample. CBC stood by its test results, posting the six page report for all to see on its site.  "Only the Subway samples had significant levels of plant DNA," the CBC wrote. The CBC also cited Robert Hanner,  biologist and associate director for the Canadian Barcode of Life Network at the University of Guelph in Ontario. "DNA tests do not lie (especially when conducted multiple times), and anyone with access to a DNA laboratory could perform these tests," Hanner wrote. The CBC also clarified part of its study, stating that "DNA tests don't reveal an exact percentage of the amount of chicken in the whole piece, but DNA experts have told
Marketplace that the testing is a good indicator of the proportion of animal and plant DNA in the product." Subway declined to talk on camera about its study with CBC, and show where and how its chicken is made.  Subway did not immediately respond to request for comment and additional information.  BONUS: This parkour robot overlord has 'Terminator' written all over it

Spoiler Alert: Subway chicken sandwiches are only 50% chicken, but they’re still 100% delicious

Spoiler Alert: Subway chicken sandwiches are only 50% chicken, but they’re still 100% delicious

As a sandwich aficionado, I've always hated the fact that Subway tends to get a bad rap. Because the company has franchises everywhere, and because most everything on the Subway menu is pretty cheap, people tend to dismiss the sandwich chain as 'low-rent' compared to some pricier and less tastier options. To be perfectly honest, and at the risk of embarrassing myself, I've long been a staunch Subway defender and apologist.

When someone a few years ago discovered that Subway bread contains azodicarbonamide, a chemical found in yoga mats, I said nothing. After all, far be it from me to judge the chemical composition of tasty bread. If anything, the news made me look at yoga mats in a whole new light. More recently, when Subway was caught ripping off consumers by selling 11-inch bread while advertising footlong sandwiches, I, once again, said nothing.

Alas, the latest controversy involving my beloved sandwich chain has prompted me to speak up. It pains me to say it, but Subway has finally gone too far.

According to a troubling report from the CBC, DNA testing on Subway's oven-roasted chicken found that the patty only contains about 50% chicken. As for what comprises the remaining 50%, well, let's just say I'd rather not know. The oven-roasted chicken, though, wasn't the only offending item on Subway's menu. Similar DNA testing found Subway's Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki strips are only 42% chicken.

While it's not realistic to expect a menu item at a fast food joint to be 100% pure chicken — marinades and other add-ons can easily dilute the results — 40% is simply inexcusable. Subway's performance here is even more glaring given that chicken dishes tested at other fast food establishments scored much higher. McDonald's grilled Country Chicken sandwich, for example, was found to be about 85% chicken.

Subway has since come out and refuted the CBC's findings, while at the same time promising to look into the matter.

“The accusations made by CBC Marketplace about the content of our chicken are absolutely false and misleading,” Subway said in a statement provided to Consumer Affairs. “Our chicken is 100% white meat with seasonings, marinated and delivered to our stores as a finished, cooked product.

"We have advised them of our strong objections," the statement adds. "We do not know how they produced such unreliable and factually incorrect data, but we are insisting on a full retraction. Producing high quality food for our customers is our highest priority. This report is wrong and it must be corrected.”

As for me, the report has forced me to look at Subway in a whole new light. I'm not going to stop eating there — that would be downright crazy — but I might just stick with the tuna from now on. What can I say, I like to live dangerously.
