Subway to Remove Chemical from Bread

 
Subway to Remove Chemical from Bread
Posted February 6th, 2014 @ 6:00pm by KFBK News

The Subway restaurant chain is removing a chemical used in shoe soles and yoga mats from its sandwich bread.  

The announcement came Wednesday, after a food blogger collected 57,000 signatures during a petition drive.  

The plastic-based additive helps produce air within the foam of a yoga mat, and reportedly does the same for bread.  

The World Health Organization has linked the chemical to respiratory issues, and it's already banned in Europe and Australia.
