NEW YORK (February 29, 2016) — Subway customers can finally rest assured that their “Footlong” sandwiches will be as long as promised.

A judge last week granted final approval to a settlement of a class-action suit filed against Subway after an Australian teenager in 2013 posted an image of his sandwich on Facebook that was only 11 inches.

A judge had granted preliminary approval in October to the settlement between Subway’s parent company Doctor’s Associates and plaintiffs’ attorneys. Final approval was granted on February 25.

As part of the settlement, Subway agreed to institute practices to ensure its bread is at least 12 inches long, but monetary claims were not awarded to potential members of the class.
