Subway said Tuesday the report was "absolutely false and misleading" and that its chicken is 100 percent white meat with seasonings, marinated and delivered to stores as a finished, cooked product.

"Test results from laboratories in Canada and the USA clearly show that the Canadian chicken products tested had only trace amounts of soy, contradicting the accusations made during the broadcast of CBC Marketplace", Subway representatives said in a news release. The rest, it said, was mostly soy.

Other major Canadian fast food chains, however, do not resort to such drastic restructuring as Subway.

Yellen Signals March Rate Hike and Faster Pace of Future Increases
Earlier in the week, Robert Kaplan, head of the Dallas Fed, said he thought the Fed would likely raise rates "in the near future". Earlier, Richmond Fed president Jeffrey Lacker plugged the need for pre-emptive rate hikes, without explicitly mentioning March.

"The results from both labs found soy protein below 10 ppm, or less than 1 percent, in all tested samples".

"Test results from laboratories in Canada and the US clearly show that the Canadian chicken products tested had only trace amounts of soy, contradicting the accusations made during the broadcast of CBC "Marketplace".

The CBC didn't immediately respond to Subway's tests.

It features not one but two high-res displays at 1440×1440, refresh rate of 90Hz, a 3.5mm jack along with HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.0. The company has confirmed that the Windows 10 Creators Update will provide more control over the update experience.

"The stunningly flawed test by Marketplace is a tremendous disservice to our customers", Subway President and CEO Suzanne Greco said. The first four samples were about 85 to 90 percent chicken, which is reasonable - the composition also includes spices and sugars added for taste, although those numbers are still lower than what the companies promise in advertising. Subway then conducted their own study with two independent laboratories and found that their chicken contains less one percent soy. Clearly, we're fast approaching a ChickenGate level scandal. The study said Subway's sweet onion chicken terriyaki strips were even less, coming in at 42.8 percent.

Subway did confirm its list of ingredients in its chicken patty and chicken strips.

CBC stood by its test results, and publicly posted all six pages on its website. It publicly posted the results of the laboratory tests, which concluded that "Subway had a much higher plant DNA percentage than the other samples".
