Whole Foods in settlement in New York City overcharging probe

NEW YORK, Dec 28 (Reuters) - Whole Foods Market Inc has agreed to pay $500,000 and implement new policies and procedures to resolve an investigation into whether the retailer charged too much for some prepackaged foods at its New York City stores.
