MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (January 23, 2013)--Two New Jersey men are suing Subway, alleging that the world's biggest fast-food chain has been shorting them on its so-called foot-long sandwiches.
The filing Tuesday seeks compensatory damages from the company and a change in practices.
Plaintiffs' lawyer Stephen DeNittis says the company should either make its sandwiches 12 inches long or stop advertising them as foot-longs.
He said he's measured sandwiches from 17 area shops and not one has been 12 inches long.
The issue got widespread attention last week after a man posted a photo of a sandwich and a ruler on the company's Facebook page.
Milford, Conn.-based Subway did not immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
