Perhaps Ireland’s ruling in regard to Subway can be categorized with other carb-based debates.

Like whether hot dogs and burritos are sandwiches. (The state of New York says yes; the USDA says no.)

Subway already weighed in on the hot dog-sandwich debate, by the way. In 2010, it sent a cease and desist letter to a Florida hot dog restaurant for using the term «footlong.»

The company later decided hot dogs are, in fact, not sandwiches and recanted the letter.
