NJ Men Sue Subway Over 'Footlong' Claim

An Evesham man and an Ocean City man sued Subway in Burlington County Superior Court Tuesday, alleging that the company's supposed "footlongs" have been coming up a few inches short.


Two New Jersey men, including an Evesham resident, sued Subway in Burlington County Superior Court this week, claiming the sandwich chain has been shorting customers by selling alleged footlongs that measure less than 12 inches, according to multiple news outlets.

The plaintiffs—John Farley, of Evesham, and Charles Noah Pendrack, of Ocean City—approached attorney Stephen DeNittis, of Marlton-based Shabel & DeNittis, after reading last week about the short sandwiches.

DeNittis said he's had sandwiches from 17 shops measured—and every one came up short, according to Associated Press.

"The case is about holding companies to deliver what they've promised," he said.

The suit brings claims under the Consumer Fraud Act, alleging Subway is committing a deceptive practice in advertising its sandwiches as longer than they really are, according to My Fox Philly. The suit asks for compensation on behalf of all people who bought "footlongs" in New Jersey since 2007.
