The amount of head-shaking shenanigans that has recently plagued Subway is staggering. Between maggot-filled sandwiches, and allegedly knowing all along of former spokesperson Jared Fogle’s history as a pedophile, the chain takes Ls repeatedly—even if the five-dollar foot-long promotion is a steal of a deal.
But as sure as death and taxes, another unspeakably gross incident went down at one of the sub-shilling giant’s locations. According to Portland, Oregon’s KGW.com, a man named Matt Jones found a full-body dead rat in his friend Jay’s foot-long Italian. Just take a look at this thing:
Jones posted the photo to Facebook shortly after the two witnessed Jay’s sandwich being made. The outlet breaks down the full details behind the discovery:
Apparently Jay wanted some spinach, too. So the employee scraped the last spoonful out of the bin and plopped it onto the bread, Jones said.
“I got my drink, turned around and they were in shock like something happened,” Jones said. “There was a mouse in there. It was gross.”
According to KGW, an investigation by the county health department revealed that the restaurant wasn’t contaminated, meaning the rodent probably came in a bag of spinach.
For their troubles, Jones and Jay received full refunds. They told KGW that they filed a complaint to Subway about the mishap, but only so the chain could alert other stores; they have no plans to sue.
Still—straight up nasty.
