Whole Foods Under Investigation For Overcharging Customers

- By Bossip Staff

New York City investigators have begun to examine how Whole Food Supermarkets prices its food and concluded that eight out of the nine supermarket chain’s stores in the city have overcharged their customers over the past five years. The recent investigation occurs only a year after Whole Foods paid an $800,000 settlement in California, where inspectors learned food that was priced by weight was sold at higher prices. Consumer protection agents found several violations at Whole Foods such as inaccurate weight labels on pre-packaged food and tax being added to non-taxable items.
