Subway Responds to 'Footlong' Lawsuit

Newtown residents who like to enjoy a Footlong from Subway can rest assured that sub will in fact be 12 inches, according to a new pledge from the fast food chain.

Earlier this week, news spread of a lawsuit filed by two New Jersey men who said they measured 17 Subway Footlongs and all of them came up short.

Subway has responded to the allegations, pledging it will work to ensure all sandwiches are in fact 12 inches.

Subway provided the following statement to the Chicago Tribune:

"We have redoubled our efforts to ensure consistency and correct length in every sandwich we serve. Our commitment remains steadfast to ensure that every Subway Footlong sandwich is 12 inches at each location worldwide."

The Subway in Newtown is located at the Village at Newtown Shopping Center near the Children's Clothing Patch.
