If you're headed to Subway bring your appetite—and your ruler.
This past week, lawsuits were filed in California and New Jersey accusing the fast-food franchise of fraud and false advertising. Plaintiffs say the footlong subs just don't measure up.
According to a report in The Sacramento Bee, a suit filed Thursday in Sacramento by Richard Springer says the footlong sandwiches come up short of 12 inches.
The suit, which seeks class-action status, claims Springer “suffered an injury in fact and lost money as a result of the deceptive and unfair conduct” of Subway, according to the newspaper.
And in New Jersey, two men are also suing the sandwich giant because they say the advertised footlong sub is just shy of 12 inches.
According to NBC 10, the lawsuit was filed this week. The plaintiffs, John Farley of Evesham and Charles Noah Pendrack of Ocean City, NJ, said they measured 17 Subway footlong sandwiches and all were not quite 12 inches.
What do you think? Does this lawsuit have merit? Should a footlong sandwich measure 12 inches? Tell us in comments.
