Vani Hari, an activist blogger, is commending Subway this week after the sandwich giant announced it is in the process of removing azodiacarbonamide, a plastic-based additive, from its bread products.

According to ABC News, Hari has been researching the company's bread ingredients since 2012 and facilitated a petition urging the removal of the chemical. It was signed by more than 57,000 people.

"I'd like to note that current Subway sandwiches still have this ingredient, and urge everyone not to eat their sandwich bread until they have finally removed the chemical," Hari said.

The company said the chemical — also found in yoga mats and shoe soles — will "soon" be fully removed from the bread.
