Subway customers may soon be seeing "footlong" sandwiches that are more consistently a full 12 inches long, according to a company statement issued in the wake of lawsuits filed against the sandwich chain.
Complaints that Subway's "footlong" sandwiches don't quite measure up have stretched all the way from Australia, across the Internet and this week into courts in New Jersey and Chicago. Today, Subway responded with a statement saying it would work harder to achieve sandwich-length uniformity.
"We have redoubled our efforts to ensure consistency and correct length in every sandwich we serve," the statement said, while declining to offer comment on the suits specifically. "Our commitment remains steadfast to ensure that every Subway Footlong sandwich is 12 inches at each location worldwide."
