EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (CN) - Blimpie's "Super Stacked" sandwiches don't have twice the meat as advertised, a class action claims in Madison County Court. The class claims a 12-inch Blimpie's Best sub contains 50 grams of protein, and a 12-inch Blimpie's Best Super Stacked sub contains 73 grams of protein, so it does not have twice as much meat.
Named plaintiffs Ronald Williams and Jennifer Clayton say Blimpie's advertises its Super Stacked sandwiches as having double the meat, though they do not.
They also claim that other Super Stacked sandwiches should not be called that because there are no regular-size sandwiches to which to compare them.
The class consists of all people who have bought a Blimpie's Super Stacked sandwich in Illinois. It seeks an undetermined amount of damages wants Blimpie's enjoined from advertising its Super Stacked sandwiches as having double meat. It is represented by Robert Evola of LakinChapman in Wood River.
Kahala Corp., which operates numerous Blimpie's throughout Illinois and the U.S., is named as the defendant.
