Study finds Chicken at Subway only contains about 50 percent chicken DNA

The chicken meat that Subway restaurants serve to their customers may only have about 50 percent chicken DNA.
According to the CBC, researchers at Trent University sampled both the oven roasted chicken filets and the chicken strips that the Subway uses on its sandwiches.
And the results were alarming.
Over roasted chicken had only 53.6 percent chicken DNA, but it gets worse: the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki chicken strips had just 42.8 percent chicken DNA.
That's where our imaginations are taking us after a new study made some repugnant findings on the contents of Subway chicken. A Canadian investigation into fast food chicken claims to have discovered that Subway's "chicken" offerings were in fact only around 50% chicken-and sometimes less. Wendy's WEN, +0.65% grilled Chicken Sandwich scored 88.5 percent and Tim Hortons' US:THI Chipotle Chicken Grilled Wrap averaged 86.5 percent.
The majority of the remaining DNA was soy protein, CBC reported. Our chicken strips and oven roasted chicken contain 1% or less of soy protein.
McDonald's response: "Our grilled chicken sandwich is made with 100% seasoned chicken breast".
Last year, California upstart Clear Labs used a molecular analysis technique to test hamburgers and found rat DNA in three samples.
Wendy's response: "Wendy's Grilled Chicken Sandwich is a whole muscle chicken breast fillet; not reformed or restructured". If you are wondering what their product contains aside from chicken meat, specialists argued that it is soy. We will look into this again with our supplier to ensure that the chicken is meeting the high standard we set for all of our menu items and ingredients.
Overall, it was discovered that the fast food chicken in general had almost a quarter less protein than you'd find in home-cooked chicken. On average, each sandwich contained 16 extra ingredients-all of which are safe for consumption-the investigation found. "We do not provide ingredient percentages as we consider that information to be proprietary".
