How can I find out the calorie info for some of the food they sell at Whole Foods. The food that is already prepared. Like the fettucine w/ roasted tomatoes. And there Vegetable Fried Rice. I looked on there site but no help.

Hi! I found this on WFM's website:
The FDA's Nutritional Labeling & Education Act of 1994 requires that most food packages be labeled with nutritional information. The regulations exempt ready-to-eat foods prepared primarily on site, such as deli and bakery items and restaurant food. Additionally, nutritional information is voluntary for raw fruits and vegetables, meat, fish and poultry.
We strive to make nutritional information on all of our products available to our customers whenever possible. Rather than having a national list of approved recipes, each of our regional and in-store chefs develops hundreds of recipes, often based on local and seasonal ingredients. For example, we want our chefs to be able to react quickly when a bumper crop of blueberries is locally available, and create exciting dishes featuring this special ingredient. Due to this flexible system, the time-consuming data analysis necessary to create nutrition labels is not always possible. Due to the high volume of recipes and their seasonal nature, we suggest you contact your local store for more information on specific dishes that are of interest to you.
Rest assured that even if nutritional specifics are not available, exact ingredients in all of our prepared foods, bakery and deli items are always accessible.
I shop at Whole Foods Market and have found them to be very customer service oriented. I suggest calling your local store to see if they could assist with the nutritional info. Good luck!

I did call and they said there working on some of the information for some off there products, but they didnt have them yet. And they told me that all the ingredients are listed on there label.
I used the information they had on The Daily Plate for trader joes. So it cant be that far off.
