Subway Tuna Is Not Tuna, But A ‘Mixture Of Various Concoctions’ Lawsuit Alleges

Two California women have filed a lawsuit against Subway — and yes — one of them is actually named Karen.

The lawsuit brought upon Subway says what Subway claims is tuna is actually a “mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna”.

Filed last week in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on behalf of two California residents, Karen Dhanowa and Nilima Amin, the lawsuit contends the two “were tricked into buying food items that wholly lacked the ingredients they reasonably thought they were purchasing,” based on its labeling.

“Consumers are consistently misled into purchasing the products for the commonly known and/or advertised benefits and characteristics of tuna when in fact no such benefits could be had, given that the products are in fact devoid of tuna,” the suit claims.

Alex Brown, an attorney with the Lanier Law Firm who is representing Dhanowa and Amin in the case, said they are trying to determine what ingredients are used in Subway’s tuna. “We are conducting tests to figure out what it is. The lab tests thus far have only told us what it isn’t.”

If the lawsuit is certified as a class-action lawsuit, it would affect thousands of Subway customers in California who bought tuna sandwiches or wraps after January 21, 2017, where it has 2,266 locations.
