"Nutrition Facts" on Trader Joe's Items

Has anyone else wondered how accurate the nutritional information on the packages at TJ's is? I'm specifically referring to calories but maybe other things like fiber. I've wondered this in the past (they used to carry plastic containers of what I think they called antipasto with a lot of sundried tomatoes and olives swimming in olive oil, which was supposedly fairly low calorie). Now I have a package of Sesame Sticks where, even though the 2nd listed ingredient after wheat flour is soybean oil and when I put them down on a piece of paper, the paper was left with grease spots, the listed calories is 170 for 28 pieces, or about 6 calories each. This seems impossible.
