Subway restaurants is now saying it will live up to its promise of a foot-long sandwich. Days after two men filed a lawsuit contending the world´s largest fast-food chain was skimping on its sandwich size, the company said it regrets ´any instance where we did not fully deliver on our promise to our customers.´ Subway will ´ensure that every SUBWAY® Footlong sandwich is 12 inches at each location worldwide,´ according to a statement released by the company. Scroll down for video -Subway also told Eater.com it has ´redoubled our efforts to ensure consistency and correct length in every sandwich

Do they advertise it as a 30.5cm sandwich in Europe? Enquiring minds want to know.

Agree with #1. There have been footllong hot dogs since I was a child in the 50´s. I don´t recall advertising them as such ever being challenged. It is a catchy term of description not a contract.

So give everyone a coupon for another sandwich on the house while serving slightly bigger sandwiches.

If anything the new sandwiches could be slightly BIGGER than 12 inches.

ADVERTISING bonanza to follow

Add up one inch of meat filling times every sandwich..in every store for many years..equals millions of dollars saved by the stores.
Just think of filling your gas tank..suppose each gallon was 1 ounce short?

Doesn´t matter how long their sandwiches are, they are crap. Probably the worst sandwich chain in the country. Their sandwich bread tastes like it was made with chalk instead of flour. If you want a quality chain sandwich, go to Quiznos or Jersey Mike´s.

Can I sue these characters for wasting taxpayer money and court time? Can I sue the judge for allowing the suit?

And are these guys just starting a cottage industry of suing over every ad slogan?

#2: No. The Euro-wiches are 305 millimeters. Huge, I tell ya!

#8: They´re being test-marketed here. I got one that was 12 and 7/64ths long! I´m gonna sue over the unasked-for extra bread because it puts me at risk for obesity!

#12: Sorry, not comparable. "Foot-long" is clearly an ad slogan. Gasoline is sold by state-regulated volume, to the point where [most? all?] states do calibration checks on gas pumps and apply stickers to them. But all is not lost. Buy a gallon of gas at the hottest time of the hottest day, then measure it again on a really cold day. It might be possible to prove a short-volume of a couple milliliters.

#15: Say -- maybe Subway should counter-sue, saying the $5 bill tendered in payment has less buying-power than a year ago, or two, etc.

#6, meet #14. #14, meet #6.

Disagree, #17, I´ve never gotten a bad Subway sandwich; but I think it depends on how you tell them to make your sandwich. Many times I see customers give their order then walk on to the register--as I watch and see the sandwich maker not fulfill what the person before me just requested. I wait to see until my sandwich is made to my liking then proceed to the register.

I like the Veggie delight on honey oat bread, toasted, with one squirt of lo-fat mayo, ranch dressing, mustard, and vinegar. Yum!

I don´t know what Subway bread tastes like but it sure smells bad when it´s cooking.

Now they will be sued for making people fatter.

Not quite big enough for you? Age old problem. Subway won´t solve it.

Is it me, or do people just keep getting less intelligent, "measurably", as the days go on?

Look at the freaking photograph, let´s start from the top, call it #1, counting up pictures, only the ones with rulers..

#1, the bun is obviously squished together. Look at the left half, between 7 and 8 inches mark.

#2, some brain dead idiot is trying to convince us that the left part of the sandwich is aligned with the starting point of the ruler by using a gum box. However, the bun overlaps the box by a good 1/2 " or more. Not even considering the sandwich has a bite out of it, which would have probably compressed that half.

#3 Here, measurements start at 1/2", and end at 12 1/2", looks like a foot to me.

#4, marginal, looks like sandwich to me is not fresh, as in been refrigerated, which can cause compression.

#5 Starting the measurement at least at 1/2 inch, ended at 12 1/2, that makes a foot..

People are jerks. I´ve got an idea for these plaintiffs. Make a bar of nothing but pure chocolate, nothing added, no sugar or milk, and force it down their throats. There you go, something that is 100% as advertised.

Anyone who has accidentally bit into unsweetened chocolate knows what I mean....

I seriously doubt the extra length of the bread makes the sandwich taste any better. A silly issue. I suppose people will now grouse when they raise the cost of the sandwich by five percent.

This is a slippery slope. Next they may be sued for making it a little longer than twelve inches. They should change their advertising to "roughly a foot long".

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them."

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
