MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Two New Jersey men have sued the sandwich chain Subway, claiming the world’s biggest fast-food chain has been cheating them on its ‘footlong’ sandwiches.
John Farley of Evesham and Charles Noah Pendrack of Ocean City filed suit in Mount Holly Superior Court on Tuesday and are seeking compensatory damages from the company and a change in practices.
The lawyer for the two men said the company should either ensure their sandwiches are 12 inches long or stop advertising them as footlongs.
Lawyer Stephen DeNittis said he’s measured sandwiches from 17 area shops and not one has been 12 inches long. DeNittis said he is seeking class-action status and is preparing to file a similar suit in Pennsylvania state court.
