US fastfood franchise Subway is facing a lawsuit. It looks like Subway has to pay damages to a customer because of the alleged fraud concerns related to its tuna related products. A federal judge has said that Subway can be sued for using fish species like chicken, pork, and cattle instead of the advertised “100% tuna”.

Subway has been protesting over the matter. However California judge, Jon Tigar said that it has rejected its plea to dismiss the case. Nilima Amin, the customer will be given a chance to prove her allegations in court.

It was in January 2021 when the lawsuit was filed. Amin said that testing had 'repeatedly' shown that Subway made its tuna products with no tuna fish.

Although, in June 2021, she changed her petition to focus instead on whether Subway served "100% sustainably caught skipjack and yellowfin tuna”, as shown in its advertisement.

Tests done at UCLA's Barber Lab said that 19 of 20 samples had "no detectable tuna DNA sequences," although 20 had chicken DNA, 11 had pork DNA, and 7 had cattle DNA.
