Men Disappointed in Sandwich Length File Lawsuits Against Subway

Three men are suing Subway saying its footlong sandwiches just don't measure up.

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. 

Read the full story on NBC 10.

What do you think? Does this lawsuit have merit? Should a footlong sandwich measure 12 inches? Tell us in comments.

This time l just couldn't hold the "m and a" from my LOL! ...what is it with men and their need for a massive amount of inches?lol... On the serious side...this is just probably another way of unemployed people getting desperate to find some money. This type of lawsuits are better left for major issues that affect he physical and mental wellbeing of the masses. We all know a thing or two as to why companies do these things, we all have noticed that food business are cutting down portions and hours due to low profits and decline in costumers, so by shorting a piece of loaf by 1/2" or even 1" could not only save the business having to close or lay off some workers or raising costs to those same all ready finacially strapped costumers and not least, saving some extra calories to those who might not need them anyway!
