Bungled Restaurant Burger Nutrition Online

An online listing of nutrition info for restaurants shows a steakhouse burger as having 392 calories per 1/2 serving, 405 calories from fat, 0 grams saturated fat and 0 grams protein.


Ooops. It is impossible to have more calories from fat than there are total calories, impossible for a meat burger to have 0 g protein, and with a whopping 45 grams of fat, it will contain quite a bit of saturated fat. Apparently, some of the data is for ½ serving, some is for a whole burger, and some is simply missing (but shown as “0”). We have found many such errors in online listings of restaurant nutrition information, as well as a lack of ingredient listings, weights of the servings, and sources of the data, which make it impossible to even guess at the accuracy (when the numbers aren’t flagrantly off as in this case, even though no one seems to have noticed after more than a month).
