Two New Jersey men filed a complaint against popular chain Subway on Tuesday, claiming the restaurant has been "deceptive" in advertising its sandwiches as a full foot long.
The men filed a proposed class action complaint in the Superior Courts of New Jersey in Burlington County with the assertion that Subway's "Footlong" sandwich is consistently and significantly less than 12 inches long.
The men's attorney said of the case, "Subway is profiting…potentially millions of dollars at consumers' expense through mass, uniform, widespread misrepresentations about the size of its ‘Footlong.'"
Law firm Shabel & DeNittis announced they will represent the men. The suit brings claims under the Consumer Fraud Act, alleging that Subway is committing a deceptive practice in advertising its sandwiches as longer than they really are.
The suit asks for compensation on behalf of all people who bought "Footlongs" in New Jersey since 2007.
Rain moved in Saturday afternoon and the chance for it will stick around through the seven day forecast.
It becomes very unsettled across our area with clounds and showers again Sunday. The best chance for rain is in the morning and afternoon thunderstorms are possible towards our south.
Sunday is cool but we do warm up well into the 80s by Tuesday. With the warm weather comes a better chance for thunderstorms.
