The reputation and image that Subway has had over the years is slowly declining.

With Jared Fogle (who would have been a first ballet spokesman hall of famer) going under for his history as a pedophile and sandwiches filled with maggots, another disturbing story has erupted. A man named Matt Jones and other subway customers found full-sized dead rodents in their sandwiches.

“It’s the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, but it’s also the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen,” Jones said, recalling his initial reaction. “I laughed because I was like, there is no way this just happened.”

According to, many costumers who ordered spinach found rodents in their food.

However, the state health department felt that the circumstances did not put anyone at risk of getting sick Cheryl Connell, Dir. Of Lincoln County Health and Human Services told

“They [health inspectors] consulted with physicians and we followed their advice that, although it is not very appetizing, the risk of someone becoming sick due to eating lettuce with those particular circumstances were very low,”

No matter how low of a risk it is, most will say this is utterly disgusting none the less. Subway executives agree as they released a statement to KGW saying:

“As soon as the customer alerted the owner about what happened, they were immediately given a full refund and an investigation was launched. To be cautious, all of the products in the sandwich unit were disposed of and a thorough cleaning took place, in which the Health Department gave the restaurant a clean bill of health. There were no other complaints made.”
