Subway’s announcement came a day after popular food blogger, Vani Hari, started a petition on her website foodbabe.com asking Subway to stop using the chemical in their bread.
Several people on Twitter criticized Subway and shared the petition using the hashtag #NoWaySubway.
A Subway representative told the Associated Press that the change to remove the chemical was underway before the petition was launched, but did not give details on when it would be complete.
Last week, Michelle Obama ate lunch and gave a press conference at a Subway outlet in Washington D.C., to announce Subway’s three-year commitment in support of her health initiative.
