Changing Nutrition Fact info?

forzagto | Jun 7, 2008 12:16 PM

I had been getting a certain type of granola from the bins at Whole Foods because the Nutrition Facts showed it being lower in calories, fat and sugar than most of the other available granolas. Then on one of my visits to replenish my stock I noticed that the Nutrition Facts label had completely changed- almost double the fat, sugar and way more calories; however the ingredients and serving size remained the same- knew it was too good to be true.
I can sort of see this happeneing in a store because i'm sure it is less regulated than more commercial product food labels; has anyone else experienced this happening and can we really trust the Nutrition Facts labels on store bought items like bread, cereals, dried fruits, grains, granolas, cheese, etc.
