Whole Foods pays $800,000 for overcharging shoppers

Whole Foods (NYSE:WFM) failed to tell the whole truth about pricing and now has agreed to pay an $800,000 settlement and adhere to strict oversight.

California Weights and Measures inspectors found the grocer was charging more than the displayed price in a variety of ways. It sometimes charged shoppers for the weight of containers holding food or portioned out less than the listed weight on some items. Whole Foods also violated a requirement to sell food by the weight, not piece. Story
