BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Subway issues statement on tuna lawsuit


A lawsuit filed this month that claims Subway’s tuna fish is not made with tuna is swimming in a sea of “baseless allegations,” according to a statement issued Thursday by the sandwich chain in the face of widespread media reports.


The lawsuit, filed on Jan. 21 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, alleges that the “‘tuna’ is a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna, yet have been blended together (by Subway) to imitate the appearance of tuna.” It does not state what is in the tuna.


Firing back and accusing the plaintiffs of being “reckless” in damaging franchises, Subway said “(t)here simply is no truth to the allegations in the complaint… 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.” 


Subway says plaintiffs’ attorneys are fishing for notoriety: “Unfortunately, this lawsuit is part of a trend in which the named plaintiffs’ attorneys have been targeting the food industry in an effort to make a name for themselves in that space.”
