Fatfree margarine

If this has already been answered, I'm sorry, I'm a tad behind in reading.

Someone asked about fatfree margarine, 5 cal per serving, 0 cal from fat,
when purchased in the small container and 5 cal per serving, 5 cal from
fat when purchased in the large container. 

This is the problem with the 'fat-free' labeling. If the number of
calories from fat is less that a certain PERCENTAGE of the entire amount,
they are entitled to say ZERO calories from fat (when it actual is not
zero). In a large container, the number of calories from fat will not make
the cutoff and thus have to be GREATER THAN ZERO.

It's a round off thing! Yuck,eh?
