Default Are the daily nutrient counts correct?

When I use the nutrition tab to see my daily total %s of my nutrients the totals don't seem to be the same as if I look at each individual food and calculate the totals manually.

Is anyone else having this problem? I've checked out several other calorie counting sites and I like Fitday's interface best, but if the data tracking isn't correct I'll have to use one of the other one's (which I don't really want to do).

Anyone else having this problem?

Is anyone working on fixing this?

An example is attached. (Froot Loops, 1 cup, + 1 cup skim milk.)

B12: 35% + 22% = 142% ??
Vit A: 10% + 10% = 41% ??
Vit C: 24% + 0% = 19% ??
Vit D: 9% + 25% = 69% ??

Sometimes the totals are correct, sometimes more than double, sometimes less than what it should be. It seems totally messed up.
