Jared Fogle: Suspended by Subway Amid Child Porn Scandal

by at .

Jared Fogle has a lot more to worry about at the moment than which $5 foot-long he'll be eating for lunch tomorrow.

The long-time Subway spokesman has been suspended by the sandwich-making company after becoming linked to a child pornography investigation.

About two months after the director of Fogle’s charity foundation was found to have over 500 child porn videos in his house, news broke on Tuesday that Fogle’s home in Indiana had been raided by federal agents.

It's unclear at the moment whether or not they recovered any evidence of wrongdoing on Fogle's part, though Jared is yet to be charged with any crime.

"We are shocked about the news and believe it is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee," Subway said in its initial statement.

"We are very concerned and will be monitoring the situation closely."

A few hours after the raid occurred, Subway then released a second statement that clarified its relationship with Fogle:

"Subway and Jared Fogle have mutually agreed to suspend their relationship due to the current investigation.

"Jared continues to cooperate with authorities and he expects no actions to be forthcoming. Both Jared and Subway agree that this was the appropriate step to take."

Fogle has been scrubbed from the Subway website and also from the website of CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health), a charity he had been working with since 2011.
