Subway suspends relationship with spokesman Jared Fogle following FBI search

Subway has suspended its relationship with former spokesman Jared Fogel following an FBI raid on his Indianapolis homes yesterday morning, reportedly in connection to a child-pornography investigation.

The sandwich chain has removed all references to him from its social media accounts and released a statement confirming that the company and Fogel “have mutually agreed to suspend their relationship due to the current investigation". The statement confirmed that “Jared continues to cooperate with authorities and he expects no actions to be forthcoming”.

The company also tweeted the announcement a short time later.

The FBI confirmed to CBS News that Fogle is a suspect in the case against Russell Taylor, the ex-director of Fogle’s Jared Foundation charity founded to fight child obesity. Taylor was arrested for possessing over 500 child porn videos and currently faces seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.
