Subway sandwich chain says it’s suspending its relationship with Jared Fogle due an investigation involving the chain’s spokesman.

The statement from the company says Fogle continues to cooperate with authorities and that he expects “no actions to be forthcoming.” It said both sides agreed suspending the relationship was “the appropriate step to take.”

The statement comes after Subway removed pages referencing Fogle from its website. Fogle’s home had been raided earlier Tuesday by federal and state authorities.

Fogle became a Subway spokesman after losing 245 pounds by regularly eating Subway sandwiches.

An attorney for Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle says his client is cooperating with authorities who raided his suburban Indianapolis home early Tuesday.

Attorney Ron Elberger released a statement several hours after the raid that says Fogle “has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges, and looks forward to its conclusion.”

Authorities have declined to comment on the raid at Fogle’s house in Zionsville or describe the nature of the investigation.

Subway says the company believes the raid “is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee.”

In May, federal prosecutors charged 43-year-old Russell Taylor with production of child pornography and possession of child pornography. Taylor is the former head of the Jared Foundation.

Subway says a raid at the home of its spokesman Jared Fogle is likely linked to an investigation into an employee at the foundation he founded to combat childhood obesity.

In a brief emailed statement Tuesday, the restaurant chain expresses shock and concern at the raid on Fogle’s Indiana home.

Subway says the company believes the raid “is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee.”

In May, federal prosecutors in Indianapolis charged 43-year-old Russell Taylor with seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Taylor is the former head of the Jared Foundation.

A Subway representative, Cindy Carrasquilla, didn’t respond when asked for more details.

FBI agents and Indiana State Police are at the home of Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle and have removed electronics from the property.

FBI Special agent Wendy Osborne said Tuesday that the FBI was conducting an investigation in the Zionsville area but wouldn’t confirm it involved Fogle.

WTHR-TV and The Indianapolis Star report the house belongs to Fogle and that he was detained while electronics were removed from the home and analyzed inside a mobile forensics van.

Calls to Fogle’s home went unanswered Tuesday.
