Subway: No more Roast Beef WTF

Subway Quietly Removed 2 Options From Its Menu, and the People are Angry

Where's the (roast) beef? Gone from Subway's lineup, along with rotisserie-style chicken.

While there has been no official announcement from the company, the @SubwayListens Twitter account has been pretty obviously swerving complaints from consumers in a way that confirms the meats' removal, replying that there might still be leftover roast beef and chicken at certain locations.

Sure, maybe the chicken ranked last on our list of best subway sandwiches, toddling slowly behind the ever-soggy, ever-disappointing veggie sandwich, but did it deserve this? Uh, Yes. Thrillist noted in 2018 that the rotating poultry was "dry, brittle, and hidden within the elbow of the bun."

As for the roast beef? That ranked No. 3. Was it the best sandwich in the world? No, but it's a fairly standard meat choice -- it's what my dad always has me pick up at the deli. When I texted him asking him what he thought about Subway's discontinuing his choice of sandwich meat, he didn't answer. He must have been too upset, just like fans of the sandwich chain:

Weren't they just exposed for fake tuna? Perhaps there's reasons for silently pulling the roast beef.

Earlier today, the Washington Post reported that Subway’s tuna sandwiches are actually made of a delicious sounding melange called “concoctions.” According to a lawsuit filed by Karen Dhanowa and Nilima Amin with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, the filling is “made from anything but tuna,” and is instead “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna.” Multiple lab samples of the filling allegedly found no trace of tuna, nor fish at all, though they don’t say what was found in its place. Dhanowa and Amin are suing Subway for fraud.
Subway, of course, denies the allegations, saying they use wild-caught tuna in their sandwiches. On a nutrition guide on its website, Subway lists the ingredients of its tuna salad as “flaked tuna in brine (tuna, water, salt)” and mayonnaise. A spokesperson told the Post, “Tuna is one of our most popular sandwiches. Our restaurants receive pure tuna, mix it with mayonnaise and serve on a freshly made sandwich to our guests.” However, a 2019 report showed that about 20 percent of fish is mislabeled, with fraud or misidentification happening at multiple points in the supply chain.

Been that way for awhile over here. Tried to order a club months ago. No more veggie patties either for when you want something a little healthier. And they got rid of the Oregano too.

Imitation crab is made from Pollock but it's tasty, it's what they put in California rolls.
