Overcharged by Whole Foods?

Multiple government entities have and/or are investigating Whole Foods for pricing violations. In fact, after a statewide investigation found widespread pricing violations at Whole Foods Markets in California, in 2014 the company settled with three California cities and agreed to pay $800,000 in civil penalties.

Now, the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs has uncovered “systematic overcharging for pre-packaged foods” in the city’s Whole Foods stores.  New York officials have reported that its investigation of 80 types of pre-packaged products revealed none had correct weights.  Moreover, 89% of packages violated federal rules for how much a package can deviate from the actual weight.

If you purchased pre-packaged food at Whole Foods and you have any questions or concerns about the same, contact attorneys Helen Zeldes or Aaron M. Olsen of Haeggquist & Eck, LLP at (619) 342-8000.
