Kahala spokeswoman Jami Thompson responded today that "Super Stacked" subs do have double meat portions and added: "What they don't have is twice the protein, and we don't say that they do. There is twice the protein from meat because it's double the meat, but it's not double the protein because the bread also contains protein and it's served on the same roll for both sandwiches."Williams and Clayton are represented by attorney's from the powerful Wood River law firm LakinChapin. They hope to make the suit a class-action, allowing anyone in Illinois who believes that Blimpie stiffed them on sandwich meat to receive "compensation for costs and attorney fees and other relief deemed 'just and appropriate.'"
Thompson said company officials have not yet received a copy of the complaint but look forward to explaining the difference between protein content and double meat.
