“It is unacceptable that New Yorkers shopping for a summer BBQ or who grab something to eat from the self-service aisles at New York City’s Whole Foods stores have a good chance of being overcharged”, stated DCA Commissioner Julie Menin.

Whole Foods having nine stores in New York City and one will soon open in Harlem has not clearly denied the charges, but also said that any overcharges were not intentional.
