Update: Scroll to the comments to see a fix if this is causing you trouble.
Mike Blumenthal reports that there is a ubiquitous bug in Google Places today, causing phone numbers to be displayed incorrectly after any Places edits. He writes:
Any Places edit seems to cause the smooshed phone number bug in Google Places. I repeat, the Places Dashboard is armed and dangerous. Do not approach, do not interact, immediately report any sitings of the smooshing bug directly to the forum.
Just chance that I have not made any Places updates recently… and expect I will wait to do anything until Google makes some sort of fix. If this really happens on any edit, it is much more common than most bugs – and will hopefully quickly be squashed.
Time to get out the flyswatter Google.
