Subway Footlongs are only 11 inches, lawsuits claim

The suits accuse the restaurant chain of deceptive advertising and sales practices

Apparently size really does matter, at least when it comes to Subway sandwiches. The restaurant chain is now facing three lawsuits over allegations that its famed “Footlong” sandwiches are actually only 11 inches long.

This revelation came courtesy of an Australian teenager, whose photo of a Footlong next to a tape measure went viral on the Internet last week. Since then, plaintiffs in Mount Holly, N.J.; Philadelphia and Chicago have sued Subway for compensatory damages and injunctive relief for deceptive advertising.
