New Measures Guarantee A Foot Long Subway Sandwich
In the year 2013, Australian Matt Corby posted a picture in facebook showing a subway sandwich with the ruler on the top ensuring that the sandwich was only 11 inches. This photo spread virally and the eatery was accused of making sandwiches shorter than advertised. A lawsuit in Chicago was brought by Nguyen Buren, who claimed his Subway was less than 11 inches long. This led to the class action lawsuit.
On a Settlement proposal, the world’s largest food chain will now ensure that the staff will adhere to the new rule of using a ruler to measure the footlong sandwich.
A spokesman for Subway ensured that training will be provided to the staff to sell the full 12-inch sandwich. He also added, “ We have redoubled our efforts to ensure consistency and correct length in every sandwich we serve.Our commitment remains steadfast to ensure that every Subway Footlong sandwich is 12 inches at each location worldwide.”
Compliance inspections will also be carried out to ensure that the new rules are followed. Locations that fail to comply with the rules will draw severe penalties.
