at Check Stand: For packaged or bagged items like fresh
produce or bulk coffee that are weighed at the check stand, compare the
displayed weight on the scale to the net weight on the sales receipt. The weight on the receipt should be slightly
less if the system properly deducted the weight of the packaging material. Contact your local Weights and Measures
Authority with questions or concerns.
