Has Whole Foods Been Ripping You Off All Along?! See Why The Grocery Chain Is Being Investigated HERE!
Be careful where you shop!
Whole Foods is known to many people as a higher end grocery store. They quite often have alternative and sometimes healthier food options, which justifies the price being a bit inflated.

The New York City Department of Consumer Affairs has opened up a probe into the ever-growing list of pricing violations by Whole Foods dating back to 2010! Most of these complaints are related to mislabeling pre-packaged food with incorrect weights.

In one instance, there was an item that was marked up $4.85 more than it was supposed to be!!
