Subway said Friday it plans to sue the Canadian Broadcasting Network for reporting the company’s chicken contains around 50 percent soy, claims it says are false, the Toronto News reported.

CBC on Feb. 24 claimed Subway’s oven-roasted chicken contained only 53.6 percent chicken while the chicken strips used in the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwiches had 42.8 percent chicken. The remainder of the product, the CBC said, was a soy filler.

“We have issued a notice of action in Canada against the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation that asks for $210 million in damages over allegations made by its program, Marketplace, that are defamatory and absolutely false,” said Subway.

“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. Serving high-quality food to our customers is our top priority, and we are committed to seeing that this factually incorrect report is corrected.”

CBC said it stands by its reporting.

The broadcasting company tested chicken from various fast food restaurants at a university in Ontario and reported the percentages of chicken DNA found in Wendy’s was 88.5, 86.5 percent at Tim Hortons and 84.9 percent in McDonald’s chicken products.
