You’d think Michelle Obama would have seen to this before joining forces with Subway.

From the Chicago Tribune:

Subway said it will stop using azodiacarbonamide, a chemical used in the production of foamed plastics like yoga mats and rubber-soled shoes, in its bread.

“We are already in the process of removing azodiacarbonamide as part of our bread improvement efforts despite the fact that it is USDA and FDA approved ingredient,” the company said in a statement. “The complete conversion to have this product out of the bread will be done soon.”

Subway was using the ingredient as a bread conditioner, to whiten the dough and allow bread to bake faster.

So that’s why they call it a “foot long”?
