Wendy's Nutritional Information in ERROR!

This morning I had no time for breakfast at home, and decided to stop at Wendy's for a quick bite. They have fresher options compared to most places with fried chicken and biscuits for breakfast. (Although they do have one option like that..ugh) Any who, I decided to check the nutritional information when I got to work on the item I purchased. The way the Wendy's website is set up, is that they have a side menu to choose specific items, and they also have shortcuts to information on the most popular items shown with photos on the homepage. You can see what I mean at www.wendysbreakfast.com

So I click on the item from the shortcut on the homepage, as well as on the side bar. The nutritional information for the exact same item was NOT THE SAME. It was almost completely different! It was the Artisan Egg Sandwich with Applewood Smoked Bacon. One page said it was 370 calories with 32 g of fat. The other grid of information for the same item said 400 calories with 19 g of fat. It turns out that several breakfast items had this problem, so I immediately called the nutrition department to see what was the actual information. The woman was baffled and could not explain why the information was so different. She told me she would call someone higher up and give me a call back. Well, the sandwich is actually 400 calories, she didn't tell me the fat content. Lesson here, pay attention. Don't take a multi billion dollar company's word for it. Link to photos below...
