Surprise! Study finds Subway's chicken may contain less than 50% chicken.

Surprise! Study finds Subway's chicken may contain less than 50% chicken.If you order a chicken sandwich you expect to get a chicken sandwich, right? Well not all chicken sandwiches are created equal. A recent poultry analysis by CBC Marketplace made an unsettling discovery. According to the report, Subway's chicken was found to contain less than 50 percent chicken DNA.  SEE ALSO: Taco Bell ditched the Naked Chicken Chalupa, so here's how to make your own CBC reported that Subway's oven-roasted chicken contained only 53.6 percent chicken DNA, while its chicken strips were found to have only 42.8 percent chicken DNA. The other major ingredient was soy.  Matt Harnden, a researcher at Trent University's Wildlife Forensic DNA Laboratory, tested six sandwiches from fast food restaurants. The two Subway sandwiches were the worst offenders.  Most of the other meats tested were "very close" to 100 percent chicken, according to Harnden, so they tested the Subway chicken again. He tested the DNA from five pieces of oven-roasted chicken and five pieces of chicken strips, found in Subway's wraps. The results from the five pieces were averaged, giving the numbers 53.6 percent and 42.8 percent, respectively.  After the report was released, Subway released a statement saying it disagrees with the findings.  "Our chicken strips and oven roasted chicken contain 1 percent or less of soy protein. We use this ingredient in these products as a means to help stabilize the texture and moisture," Subway said in its statement.  Subway also said it will look into the matter and ensure with its supplier that the chicken is meeting the company's standards.  UPDATE: Feb. 28, 2017, 10:53 p.m. EST A spokesperson for Subway released the following updated statement to Mashable. Just for reference, researchers say that chicken from the grocery store should  contain 100 percent chicken DNA.   BONUS: Meet 'Big Mac,' the 23-pound chicken about to gobble up a world record

Following MacBook Pro backlash, Tim Cook promises Apple won’t forget about its Pro users

Following MacBook Pro backlash, Tim Cook promises Apple won’t forget about its Pro usersTim Cook earlier today addressed growing concerns that Apple is no longer interested in catering to creative professionals. During a Q&A session at Apple's annual shareholder meeting, Cook said that Apple remains committed to the Pro market and that the company has no plans to abandon that specific user demographic. "You will see us do more in the pro area," Cook said in a response to a question about the Mac Pro. "The pro area is very important to us. The creative area is very important to us in particular." Cook's statements are particularly timely given the backlash Apple has been experiencing over the past few months following the release of the MacBook Pro with TouchBar. Even though developers and creative professionals found the TouchBar  to be a nice feature, the overwhelming consensus among professionals seemed to be that Apple's revamped notebook line was overpriced and under-powered. One of the more commonly raised complaints centered on the fact that Apple's new notebooks can't be upgraded beyond 16GB of RAM. What's more, it's hard to ignore the fact that Apple's Mac Pro hasn't seen an update in more than 1,150 days. Having said that, 2017 stands to be a big year for Apple hardware. In addition to an anticipated spec bump for the MacBook Pro, we should also see the iMac receive a long overdue update as well. And though we haven't seen any rumors in this regard, perhaps Apple this year will surprise us all with a revamped Mac Pro. As for other notes of interest from Apple's shareholder meeting, Cook called Apple's AirPods a "cultural phenomenon" while also stating that Apple last quarter couldn't keep up with demand for the Apple Watch Series 2. On the financial front, Cook promised to increase Apple's quarterly dividends on an annual basis.
