Subway suspends relationship with Spokesperson after FBI raids his home

Fogle has worked with the sandwich with almost 15 years working as the official spokesman for the global company.

Subway, the global sandwich chain, has cut ties with his spokesperson Jared Fogle after FBI raids his home in Indiana over child pornography, reported Quartz.

It follows the arrest of Russell Taylor, the former director of Fogle’s Jared Foundation, on child pornography charges earlier this year. Taylor attempted suicide on May 6 while being held in jail, and was placed on life support.

According to TV news channel WTHR, Fogle was not placed under arrest, and his wife and children left the house after the raid began. According to his Twitter profile, Fogle is “on a mission to eliminate childhood obesity.”

Fogle has worked with the sandwich with almost 15 years working as the official spokesman for the global company.

“Subway generated the perception that it’s a healthy place to eat through Jared, and it stuck,” restaurant researcher Malcolm Knapp told USA Today. “That’s a very powerful tool. You don’t hear people saying that they can eat healthy at McDonald’s.”

According to a statement issued by Subway, “We are shocked about the news and believe it is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee. We are very concerned and will be monitoring the situation closely. We don’t have any more details at this point.”
