Several stores come up short in Arizona inspections

PHOENIX -- State officials said the contents of some packages of tortillas sold in Arizona aren't what they're advertised.

The Department of Weights and Measures said seven of the 36 locations inspected this month sold product that either was short on advertised weight or contained fewer tortillas than advertised.

The businesses inspected included grocery stories, big- box locations and membership businesses.

Department Director Kevin Tyne said most of the violations went to out-of-state manufacturers and to local supermarkets that package their own tortillas.

He said the goal should be to meet or exceed the stated weights so that customers get what they pay for.
