New York City's consumer agency says Whole Foods supermarkets have been routinely overcharging customers by overstating the weight of prepackaged items.

The city's Department of Consumer Affairs said Wednesday it tested 80 different types of pre-packaged products and found mislabeled weights on every one. It said the overcharges ranged from 80 cents for a package of pecan panko to $14.84 too much for coconut shrimp.
