A West Sacramento man claims that a Burlingame Subway sold him an 11-inch sandwich, instead of a footlong — a claim that has led to numerous lawsuits against the fast-food eatery.
On Jan. 16, Richard Springer ordered what was advertised as a footlong sub at the Burlingame Subway and found it was an inch short of being a footlong, according to The Sacramento Bee. Springer filed a lawsuit accusing Subway of fraud and false advertising regarding the sandwich company’s footlongs, the Bee reports.
Springer’s lawsuit is one of many recently filed against Subway for similar accusations. It all began when Matt Corby posted a photo on Facebook showing that his footlong Subway sandwich from an Australian Subway was only 11 inches. It went viral and lawsuits ensued. Two men from New Jersey and a man from Chicago filed lawsuits claiming the chain’s footlongs measure less than 12 inches, according to The Huffington Post.
On the company’s Facebook page, a number of customers have also posted photos of their footlongs alongside a ruler. Some have suggested the company give way free 1-inch subs to make up for the shortfall.
