Elie Mystal used to be Editor in Chief of Above the Law, but it now appears he is merely a staff editor, and David Lat is back in the driver’s seat.  Sorry, bubba.

As reported on AbovetheLaw.com, Blimpie is being sued for fraud over its “double stacked” subs, which are supposed to contain twice the meat.  The law suit is based on nutritional information which the plaintiffs claim shows they don’t really have twice the meat.

A 12 inch Blimpie Best has 49 grams of protein, but a double stacked of the same has only 71 grams.

Too bad lots of other things in the sub contain protein other than meat.  Using the exact same nutritional info pdf, we find that a 12 inch white loaf contains 15 grams of protein.  Two servings of American cheese are 10 grams of protein.  If those were the only other protein sources on the sub, we’d have 24 grams from meat on the regular and 49 grams of protein on the double stack.  Holy shit!  That’s twice as much!
