One of the nation's largest fast-food chains, Subway, is currently under fire following a new lawsuit targeting the sandwich shop's tuna.
Independent testing has repeatedly affirmed, the products are made from anything but tuna.
Dhanowa and Amin filed the $5-million lawsuit after recently getting tuna sandwiches from the fast-food chain and having some "independent testing" done on the ingredient.
Subway's tuna is "made from a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together by Defendants to imitate the appearance of tuna," the documents claim.
The two have brought claims of "fraud, intentional misrepresentation, negligent misrepresentation, and unjust enrichment" against the fast-food chain.
A Subway spokesperson spoke out against the claims, calling them “baseless” and “frivolous.”
“There simply is no truth to the allegations in the complaint that was filed in California,” the statement reads.
“Subway delivers 100% cooked tuna to its restaurants, which is mixed with mayonnaise and used in freshly made sandwiches, wraps and salads that are served to and enjoyed by our guests,” a Subway spokesperson told USA TODAY.*
Subway intends to "vigorously defend itself" against the claims and fight "through all available avenues if they are not immediately dismissed.”
