Response: Good question. The short answer is that we hope the facts we present are accurate but we can only rely on the information provided by the retail locations themselves, which you can find an example of here. These nutrition facts are intended only as a guide so we can more carefully select our foods but are unlikely to be precise due to variations in ingredients and preparation methods. If we've listed information that you feel may be incorrect, definitely let us know!
