Dole Romaine Lettuce error

I was wondering my my Vit A intake was so high (near dangerous levels), and it appears that the Cronometer database overstates vit A in Dole Romaine lettuce by a factor of 6.

Dole on the left, Cronometer on the right. According to this a big caesar salad could put you into a coma.

    I've noticed that the label on my store brand salad mix lists Vitamin A at 140%.

  • The problem with percents is that there isnt always agreement on the baseline. RDA iis different for men and women.
