Whole Foods Ordered to Pay $800 Thousand for Overcharging Customers

Whole Foods

Anyone who has taken a high school chemistry class has been exposed to the concept of a tare. It is basically a paper or similar material placed between the scale and the substance being weighed. The weight of the tare must be deducted from the gross weight to determine the net weight of the substance. A successful lawsuit in California accused stores in the Whole Foods chain of neglecting to deduct the weight of containers containing salad bar items. That means the items were sold at higher than advertised prices, resulting in nearly $800 thousand dollars in settlement fees.
