    Oh my! Looks like the data for the pork wasn't added in. It's been recalculated, and is a more realistic 311 calories per serving now.

    The nutritional information regarding the sodium content per serving of this recipe ( http://www.food.com/recipe/steamed-snow-crab-legs-157841 ) is grossly mistaken!! I have tried to make a correction, but, can see no way to do that. Please, correct the error. Here is a link to a site with the correct nutritional information for snow crab legs: http://www.fatsecret.com/calories-nutrition/generic/crab-baked-or-broiled?portionid=8259&portionamount=1.000

    I cannot confirm the accuracy of the nutritional data from the other web page -- it does not equal the values for any crab entry I checked on the USDA's web site:

    http://ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/search/list

    Also, FloridaRobin is not comparing similar measurements. The sodium value FloridaRobin is using is for one crab. Steamed Snow Crab Legs shows the nutritional information based on weight (the measurement specified by the person who submitted the recipe).

    Our calculations are based on the USDA's ingredient: Crustaceans, crab, snow/queen, raw. I rechecked our nutritional values, and they are correct.

    I think the problem is that the recipe just says ground meat, rather than ground beef, which is probably what is meant.

    Duonyte is correct. Because "lean ground meat" could be anything and the nutritional information varies greatly for different meats, it was not included in the nutritional facts.
    Because the submitting chef put this recipe in the ground beef category, it's reasonable to assume she meant "lean ground beef." I changed the ingredient and updated the nutritional information. It's now 317 calories per serving.

    Something screwy. Low Fat, Low Calorie Enchiladas lists 68 calories per serving, impossible! Detailed view lists another amount.

    Please review and recalculate the Nutritional Facts for Recipe # 505195. Individual serving size should be approximately about 30g (give or take a few) and not 42g. I suspect that someone may have thought this yielded 31 oz and not 21. This yields about 21 oz (or 2.625 cups). This is a volume of measure and not weight. Individual serving size should be 2 Tbls = 1 oz = approx. 30g
