The nutrition label for a new barbecue sauce states that one bottle of sauce has 640mg of sodium. A local consumer group claims that the sodium content is higher than what is reported on the label.

Is there sufficient evidence to support the local consumer group’s claim that the sodium content is higher than the nutrition label states?
