Following an FBI raid of Jared Fogle's home, Subway and its chief spokesperson have agreed to suspend their relationship. The sandwich giant announced the decision in a statement posted on Facebook.

Subway and Jared Fogle have mutually agreed to suspend their relationship due to the current investigation. Jared continues to cooperate with authorities and he expects no actions to be forthcoming. Both Jared and Subway agree that this was the appropriate step to take.

Fogle has not been placed under arrest. The raid, which began at 6:30 a.m. ET in Zionsville, Ind., was likely related to Russell Taylor, a former director at Fogle's Jared Foundation, who was arrested and convicted of possessing child pornography earlier this year. Electronics and media were taken out of Fogle's home. Authorities have not commented on whether Fogle could also be guilty of harboring child pornography, but the electronics confiscated from his home are currently in the care of forensics experts.

Fogle has been the face of Subway since 2000. In the late 1990s, he lost 245 pounds thanks to a diet based on the chain's sandwiches.
