I just want to know if that information for that particular peanut butter sounds correct. Do you think I can trust it?
When they called back with the corrected number of calories the number was substantially higher. So evidently they do make mistakes. A mistake so big doesn't do much to help consumer confidence so I don't blame you for still being doubtful.
Here's a possible explanation: It's likely that not all peanut plants are the same, not grown in the same location and not harvested at the same maturity. I used to work in citrus processing and it's very true for citrus trees. There can be huge differences in quality and sweetness from one orange grove to another.
Usually we have no choice but to rely on what food processors tell us. It's unfortunate but true.
