Subway's Turkey Sandwich-

If it's good enough for Jared, it's good enough for you. Subway's 6-inch turkey breast sandwich has 280 calories. That includes 9-grain wheat bread, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, green peppers, and cucumbers. Add a bit of mustard or vinegar for flavor but stay away from the mayo or oil.

Would you like glass with that?

Subway restaurants have already incited the ire of customers this week after one of its subs didn't measure up to its footlong name. Now a customer in Peterborough, ON, is saying her sub contained pieces of glass that her toddler swallowed.

According to The Peterborough Examiner, Laura Clark bought her daughter a 6-inch turkey sub last week and when her daughter bit into it, she began to complain her mouth was hurting.

Aubrey, 3, had cuts inside her mouth, according to Clark, who reported the allegation to Subway's head office. She said her daughter also passed two pieces of glass the next day.

Doctors told Clark her daughter was at risk of an infection if any glass stays in her stomach but the toddler didn't have any more symptoms after she was examined.

An investigation by local authorities found the glass might have been in the lettuce. Subway says it has pulled the lettuce and launched an investigation to determine if the allegations are true.

Meanwhile, it seems other people are still biting into Subway subs at that Peterborough restaurant because the owner's written statement says there have been no other complaints from customers.

Jared's healthy Subway diet isn't looking so good, after all.
