The suit, filed in Trenton on Wednesday (January 23rd), accuses the chain of deceptive marketing.
A man in New Jersey is suing Subway after he discovered that the sandwich chain's subs are not actually a foot long as they advertise. The 32-year-old, Jason Leslie said he found out about the short sandwiches in a newspaper article but four days later he witnessed the sandwich length himself after ordering a meatball sub that turned out to be less than 12 inches long. He explained, "They advertise in all these commercials, 'Footlong, Footlong, Footlong,' and now I feel like an idiot. I can't believe I fell for that trick. The sandwiches are anywhere between a half-inch to an inch shorter... I feel cheated." The suit, filed in Trenton on Wednesday (January 23rd), accuses the chain of deceptive marketing. Subway has said in a statement, "We have redoubled our efforts to ensure consistency and correct length in every sandwich we serve." (UPI)
