HOUSTON – While Consumers Reports says most restaurants are telling the truth about their menu’s calories, some others are not.

One of the offenders includes Olive Garden’s lasagna primavera with grilled chicken. The menu count shows 420 calories, but the real amount can be up to 585 calories.

Another mislabeling involves the Cheesecake Factory’s meatloaf dinner. The calorie count is listed at 1,980, but it actually can have more than 2,000 calories in a serving.
