Why do foods have such vastly different nutrient contents in different databases?

I just had occasion to consider the vitamin E content of 100g egg yolk. The entry for raw egg, yolk on Cronometer says 2.6 mg, but the entry in the Swedish National Food Agency’s database says 16.7 mg! Are Swedish eggs really more nutritious or is this a huge error somewhere?
