Default What's the correct calorie content in shrimp?

I bought a package of Harvest of the Sea raw peeled shrimp from costco and the label says that per 4oz there are 60 calories. But many online sources such as here on FitDay the calorie content for raw shrimp is 120 calories per 4 oz. Which calorie label is correct?

I think the higher (120) calories are correct. Since 4oz is apprx. 113 grams. it would not make sense that they only carried .5 calories/gram. (1g Protein is 4 calories, 1g Carbohydrates is 4 calories, 1g Fat = 9 calories).

Check the label to see what they're calling a 'serving' ...
