Chicken or tuna? Jessica Simpson poked fun at her 2003 “Chicken of the Sea” mishap after Subway was accused of using “anything but tuna” in their tuna salad sandwiches earlier this month.
The chain fired back on Friday, January 29, after a lawsuit was filed against the company on January 21, claiming there is no tuna in the item in question. According to the lawsuit, based on independent testing, “the filling in the products has no scintilla of tuna at all,” USA Today reported.
Subway denied the claims, saying, “There simply is no truth to the allegations in the complaint that was filed in California. Subway delivers 100 percent 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.”
Simpson, 40, jokingly had Subway’s back on Friday, tweeting, “It’s OK @SUBWAY. It IS confusing,” alongside a video of the Today show’s coverage of the story.
