Hours after Jared Fogle’s Indiana home was raided by the FBI as part of a child pornography investigation, Subway and their longtime spokesman “mutually agreed to suspend their relationships,” the sandwich chain said in a statement on Facebook.

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

Subway found themselves in an awkward position this week when their beloved spokesman ended up involved in a child porn sting, thanks to a man linked to Fogle named Russell Taylor.

Taylor — a former director at Fogle’s Jared Foundation, a charity Fogle founded to combat childhood obesity — was arrested and convicted of possessing child pornography earlier this year.

Taylor was allegedly found with hundreds of videos containing child pornography and he’s also accused of producing some of the material, and the Jared Foundation fired him after his arrest.

Fogle’s house was raided early Tuesday morning (Jul 7) in connection with the ongoing investigation.

He hasn’t been placed under arrest and cooperated with investigators during the raid, which included a daylong forensic sweep of electronic items such as computer hardware and DVDs.

Fogle became the face of Subway around 2000 after losing 245 pounds thanks to a diet based on chain’s sandwiches.

In the wake of the child porn scandal, Subway has removed pages referencing Fogle from its website, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve already pulled his commercials from the air.
