Subway Sued Over ‘Footlongs’ That Came Up Short

ABC News’ John Muller reports:
Two New Jersey men sued Subway this week, claiming the world’s biggest fast-food chain has been shorting them by selling “footlong” sandwiches that measure less than 12 inches.
The suit, filed Tuesday in Superior Court in Mount Holly, N.J., might be the first legal filing aimed at the Milford, Conn.-based company since a Subway customer in Australia posted a photo of a “footlong” sub next to a ruler on the company’s Facebook page to allege that the sandwich was not as long as advertised.
The photo quickly spread across the Internet and the company has since been on the receiving end of a barrage of criticism.
Stephen DeNittis, the lawyer for the plaintiffs in the New Jersey suit, said he’s seeking class-action status and is also preparing to file a similar suit in Pennsylvania state court in Philadelphia.

He said he has had sandwiches from 17 shops measured, and every one came up short.  The lawsuit claims it is a “deceptive practice for Subway to advertise its large sandwich as a ‘footlong.’”

Billy - I have trouble with the robot thing too. I'll get rid of it and just delete all the spam.

Yeah, just like Subway (sandwiches), there might have been a bit of exaggeration of size.
I want to make something perfectly clear: NO REFUNDS!
