SUBWAY IS SORRY IT CAME UP SHORT

Published January 26. 2013 4:00AM

Subway is apologizing that its "Footlong" sandwiches fell short of expectations.

The world's largest fast-food chain faced widespread criticism last week after a man posted a photo online showing a "Footlong" next to a tape measure that showed it to be just 11 inches. Subway said Friday that it's redoubling efforts to "ensure consistency and correct length" in all its sandwiches.

In a statement Friday, Subway expressed "regret" for "any instance where we did not fully deliver on our promise to our customers."

It declined to comment on lawsuit filed this week by two New Jersey men over the subs.
