Ralphs to pay $1M+ for overcharge settlement

LOS ANGELES

City investigators say Ralphs failed to subtract the weight of packaging on some prepackaged and weighed food products three years ago. They claimed that effectively short-weighted the item.

A spokesperson for Ralphs said the violations that led to the investigation were unintentional, and that there's nothing misleading about their pricing. In a statement, the company said any "inadvertent discrepancies" were corrected immediately.
