We've covered the Subway Tuna controversy once before on this channel. In that, we can to the conclusion that Subway was not trying to market a mystery meat as tuna in their tuna sub. Recently the New York Times came out with an article bringing it all up again. The article said that they did a DNA test on the Subway tuna filling and could not prove it was in fact tuna. Well Theorists, I'm here to tell you that the New York Times made a pretty big mistake with their test and the tuna wants its revenge...

    Wait, how did Applied Food Technologies know that the samples were really tuna? I don't disbelieve them at all, I'm with Game Theory and every rational person on this one, I'm just curious as to how AFT could figure it out when the DNA was denatured!

    Scientist here. I called bs soon after reading the article into the testing methodology. PCR is great on some applications, but not on highly processed food stuffs, like tuna. Think about how they cook canned tuna so it can last for as long as it does. It gets pulverised! High heat, high pressure. DNA got no chance. But also the primer selected is very important too
