Walmart Overcharging Customers?

If you shop at Walmart you might think you're getting the cheapest prices on select items and you might be right, but according to a lawsuit some customers have reportedly been overcharged for items and are seeking a refund. The overcharging appears to have to do with items that required being weighed before being sold and were sold at Walmart stores between October 18, 2019, and January 19, 2024.

According to the lawsuit numerous items were marked one price and customers were charged a different price because the items weren't weighed properly.
