It's 1 inch

Eleven inches appears to be the size of Subway's footlong sandwich, according to a stream of photos posted online by angry customers around the world.

The controversy began earlier this week when an Australian man posted a photo on the company's Facebook page of his footlong sub alongside a measuring tape that read 11 inches, with the caption "subway pls respond." Later, the photo appeared to have been deleted. Since then, customers have posted photos and comments of their short subs.

Lori Olsen Arnholy, from Wooster, Ohio, said on Facebook her family regularly eats at Subway and decided to measure their sandwiches to see for themselves.

She said she bought six footlong subs Monday and four of them were just 11 inches long.

"I always thought I was always getting 12" subs ... I do smell a lawsuit," she said.

Some customers vowed to never eat at the restaurant again.

"I will NEVER buy anything from Subway now. Ever," posted Marius Andre Stensaker.

Danielle Neal said, "I feel like you've straight-out lied to costumers. I don't care if it's just an inch, it's the moral of the matter that concerns me."

Subway said in a statement Thursday the size of the bread can vary when it's not baked to the company's exact specifications.

"We are reinforcing our policies and procedures in an effort to ensure our offerings are always consistent no matter which Subway restaurant you visit," the statement said.

Subway, the largest fast-food chain the world, has more than 38,000 restaurants in 100 countries.


A lawsuit over 1"?

Shit yea. We pay for 12 inches, not 11.

No lie when I read this, I thought it was here in America. Since America is famous for suing for dumb shit

Wow. Just wow. I'm sure it has something to do with the bread not proofing right. People are just insane to have such a fit over this.

Why sue? Yes they should be the size they say, but sueing is going overboard.

Bread is a funny thing.

Different climates, altitudes, yeast, etc all affect how the dough rises.

Omg really. I use to work at a subway, if the bread is not stretched right before proofing it then when it bakes it won't come out right. I can't believe those dumbasses
