The city Department of Consumer Affairs is investigating Whole Foods for allegedly deceiving customers with incorrect weight-based pricing, the company disclosed Tuesday.

Whole Foods denied the allegations and said it would “refund any items found to have been incorrectly weighed or priced.”

Company spokesman Michael Sinatra said the upscale grocer would never resort to such sleazy tactics.

“Whole Foods Market has never intentionally used deceptive practices to incorrectly charge customers,” Sinatra said in a statement.
