Whole Foods execs are admitting the chain has been overcharging customers in New York City stores, but promised that if that ever happens again they'll give the food to customers for free.

If you read/listened to the entire press conference the Whole Foods CEO held you would have learned that when they did an internal audit they found that yes, they had incorrectly charged customers. But they also found that the incorrect charges were roughly half IN the customers favor and half on Whole Foods favor. And they went on to say that if you find a problem with the price of an item NOT in your favor, it's free.
Want to do an interesting experiment? Go to one of the warehouse stores (BJ's, Costco) and bring a calculator. Look at the price per pound and weight of an item and see if what you calculate matches the price. Try it. You'll be amazed.

So people were paying the price as advertised, and Whole Foods is to blame?
At one time the notion of Caveat Emptor actually meant something. Now we are so stupid that we are victims when we pay the price as advertised.
