Fast food often gets a bad rap for being unhealthy, but the safety concerns around Subway’s new Fresh Melts sandwiches go beyond just nutrition. The latest lineup from Subway, which includes Tuna, Ham, and Steak varieties with a generous amount of cheese, is causing issues due to the melting cheese when toasted on long rolls.

The excessive cheese in these sandwiches is leading to melting, dripping, and spillage during the toasting process. This not only damages the Subway toasters but also poses a significant risk to Subway employees due to the scalding hot cheese.

The North American Association of Subway Franchisees (NAASF) has raised the alarm, calling the Fresh Melts sandwiches a safety hazard. They have advised franchisees to carefully consider adding these items to their menus and have criticized Subway corporate for not addressing these incidents effectively.

Expressing their disappointment, the association stated, “We are incredibly disappointed in FWH leadership’s plan to move full steam ahead with this launch before these significant issues are resolved.”

In response, Subway corporate has defended the safety of the sandwiches, stating that they underwent rigorous testing before their launch.

A company representative told Restaurant Business, “The safety of our franchisees and their restaurant employees is a top priority for us. In addition to providing extensive training materials, a standard protocol is to thoroughly test all new products and innovations and make operational and equipment adjustments as needed, ensuring that our franchisees and hard-working sandwich artists are able to safely and consistently execute a quality meal that guests expect.”
