(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) An undergraduate student at Michigan State University claimed in a TikTok video to have been served a Subway sandwich with human or canine feces on it, the Detroit Free Press reported.
i’m not craving @Subway anymore
Kelsey Coyne, an undergraduate senior at the East Lansing university, stopped by Subway for lunch, but instead of a normal sandwich, she was allegedly served poop on bread.
Wanting to warn other students about the restaurant, she posted video of the disugsting sandwich on TikTok.
Coyne said that she did not think that the company would take her claims seriously.
“There is feces. We are not sure if it’s human or dog,” she said in the video. “That’s not chocolate, I know that for sure.”

She also noted that the sandwich was emitting a rancid odor, and that it had made the already-mushy Subway bread even more so.
“The smell from it was so bad, I was gagging from remembering it,” she said. “It was on the paper around it, but it was mushy.”
According to Coyne, she had a “kind of weird interaction” with the Subway employees upon ordering her food.
Police in East Lansing have taken up an investigation and will test the sandwich in a lab to determine what exactly the extra ingredient on the sandwich is.
The Ingham County Health Department looked into the matter and determined that the alleged fecal matter was simply part of a chocolate cookie.
“As soon as the restaurant was made aware of the situation, the franchisee worked with local authorities, including the police and health department, to look into the alleged claim,” the ICHD wrote in a statement.
“On Monday, September 12, the local health department released its inspection report, concluding that the remnants seen on the sandwich wrapper were chocolate from a cookie and the case has since been closed.”
Nonetheless, the ICHD may yet test the sandwich in a lab to confirm their suspicions.
When asked about the alleged fecal matter on the sandwich, the manager of the Subway franchise said that it was not poop but simply burnt sauce after the sandwich was toasted.
Coyne thought that unlikely but said she hopes that is what happened.
