Whole Foods customers threaten to boycott the chain amid allegations that it overcharged for food.

How convenient, now you need to carry a scale and calculator for shopping there!
Their response to rightfully angry customers and commentors somehow reminds me of the typical ways of a certain state and its PM!

Whole Paycheck cheated? Mr. "No Obamacare" Mackey is going to refund - how?

Excuse me but that's not overpricing when the extra is almost 50%, and every one of 80 articles was inaccurately labeled! That's fraud in my book and plain robbery.

Sam couldn't agree more with you, Sam!

Sam E.M.-ah, that's just collateral damage! Unintentional. ;)

Be careful, Angelika! You may get a certain segment of the population to start siding with the cheaters now--like they always do!

One time they overcharged me for a pkg of Irish cheese. I pointed out the price posted; they checked, determined that I was right, and gave me product free. I always keep an eye on the prices on checkout slip.

I have always believed 'Whole Foods' to be one of the biggest scams around. Really pricey for what you get. There are easier, more reliable ways to go 'natural'. Farmer's Markets, and even 'Trader Joe's' are better options.

But Sam, that segment is shrinking while the rest will steam up BDS on the cheaters! Sadly, SOME will always be out there acting against their own best interest...until a bitter wake up.

Does overpriced organic food make wanna swear? I think they were cheating their customer long before they got caught!

I think they cheated more than just one customer.

Noted. Thanks, Sam.
How did they get away with it for so long? Does no one check their register receipts?

I have walked through Whole Foods. Food looks appealing, but way over priced.

Never cared for them. I thought their prices were high the one time I went. Never went again and Never will in the future. Thanks Sam

Good Evening and thank you for this article - which I read and noted - I would rather go to my local farmer;s market and get LOUISIANA PRODUCE - rather than buy produce that is shipped clear across the country or even from outside the country---period Sincerely Kay M.

This just pisses me off. The owner simply has taken advantage of people who want to eat healthy food. Close them down. Good Bye Whole Foods. Your apology is a lie - you did this intentionally and now you get to "pay the price." Good luck getting your serious customers back - you don't deserve them.

Would there have been an admission of the error and an apology had they not been caught red-handed with their hands in the proverbial cookie jar? How long have they gone undetected in this fraud?
