The story, from the UK, was only in regard to certain stores in the UK and Ireland, about 185 in total.
CFN contacted Mr. Kevin Kane at Subway HQ in the US who confirmed via email that the chain would not be changing the mix in the US or Canada, and that we North Americans could still get our favorite ham or bacon sandwich at the chain.
This is part of a program that has been going on since 2007 in the UK and Ireland.
There are Subway stores in the UK and Ireland that serve the traditional Subway menu and there are some, in areas with a high Muslim populations, that cater to a Halal Menu.
Customers have many choices as to which store they want to visit since there are almost 1,700 Subway restaurants in the UK marketplace. The 185 Halal specific menu stores, stores that carry turkey based items in lieu of pork products, have been around since 2007.
He further stated that there are no plans to do so in the US or Canada. There are several Subway shops here in Cornwall.
