The controversy began [last] Tuesday in Australia, when a very precise customer, identified as Matt Corby of Perth, ordered a footlong sub and then pulled out a tape measure.

They said that the bread wasn’t baked up to usual quality. But a New York Post follow up found more than half the subs they tested from various locations weren’t 12 inches, either.
