The Subway sandwich does not measure up, an accusation and lawsuit filed against the world’s biggest fast food chain was filed on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013, by three New Jersey men who claim that the size of the “foot long” sandwich is not quite the 12 inches that is advertised.
As reported in the Asbury Park Press, the suit was filed in U.S. District Court in New Jersey by the firm of Marks and Klein in Red Bank and was specified as a class action lawsuit. According to the suit, Jason Leslie of Marlboro bought a foot-long Subway sub in Monmouth County and the infamous $5 foot-long measured about a half-inch short of its advertised size. The lawsuit states that Leslie has bought $5 foot-long subs for at least seven years although does not mention if every one of those sandwiches were short in size as well.
The Subway Corporation stated that the sandwich length can vary if franchises do not bake the bread to the exact corporate standards. If you feel you were a victim and didn’t get your 12 inches worth, you can contact the firm to join in on the lawsuit by contacting the law firm’s office at 732-747-7100
