Kraft foods has paid a fine of several thousand dollars after state inspectors in Wisconsin alledgedly found underweight packages of their meats in some stores:

I wonder if occurrences like this happen very often with all kinds of packaged foods, etc. I never would think to look for anything like this so I guess it's a good thing there are inspectors out there who do look for it.

It probably happens more often than you'd think. Otherwise there wouldn't be a need for inspectors, right? The average person isn't going to take a pack of meat home and weigh it. Without the inspectors, any company could get away with short changing the customers.
