UPDATE:
Subway has reportedly “suspended” its relationship with Fogle.
“Subway and Jared Fogle have mutually agreed to suspend their relationship due to the current investigation,” the sandwich chain said in a statement posted to an official Twitter account Tuesday afternoon. “Jared is cooperating with authorities.”
“Jared continues to cooperate with authorities, and he expects no actions to be forthcoming,” Subway public relations senior manager Cindy Carrasquilla said in a statement to the Indianapolis Star. “Both Jared and Subway agree that this was the appropriate step to take.”

Sandwich chain Subway has deleted longtime pitchman Jared Fogle from its website after state and federal authorities raided Fogle’s home Tuesday morning in connection with a child pornography investigation.

A link to “Jared’s Journey” on the Subway website, where users could play games and read interviews with celebrities about nutrition and healthy eating habits, is no longer working, reports TMZ. The link leads back to the Subway home page.

FBI agents and state police raided Fogle’s home early Tuesday morning, and were seen removing evidence, including electronics, from Fogle’s home to an evidence truck parked in the driveway. The raid on Fogle’s home comes two months after Russell Taylor, former executive director at Fogle’s Jared Foundation, was arrested on charges of producing and possessing child pornography.

Authorities have not yet confirmed the reason for the raid, but Subway said in a statement that it believes the raid is connected to the child porn investigation into Taylor’s activities:

“We are shocked about the news and believe it is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee. We are very concerned and will be monitoring the situation closely. We don’t have any more details at this point.”

An attorney for Fogle, Ron Elberger, told the Indianapolis Star that his client is cooperating with the investigation:

“Jared has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges and looks forward to its conclusion. He has not been detained, arrested or charged with any crime or offense.”

Elberger reportedly picked up Fogle outside his residence in a black Lexus sedan as the investigation continued Tuesday afternoon.

While Subway works to scrub Fogle from its website, at least one Jared-connected game still appears to be working on the sandwich chain’s children-oriented website, subwaykids.com.

The game, called “Jared’s Pants Dance,” is still accessible at the time of this post, although no link appears to the game from the subwaykids.com homepage.
