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.
It was a soupy start today. We can expect many clouds, some sun, lots of humidity, and a chance of pop up showers any time. At least it'll be warmer: High around 80-degrees today.
The weather remains unsettled through most of the work week. Warm temps stick around, too. And we do mean stick...because it'll be humid, too.
By Thursday a cold front moves by bringing more rain. It will also bring drier and cooler weather by Friday as we finally clear out.
