Learn Form Validation by Building a Calorie Counter - Step 65

Tell us what’s happening:

There must be some small detail im missing here, But I just can’t see it. it’s telling me to use the addition assignment operator on calories…but i’m pretty sure I am. What’s wrong with my syntax?

Your code so far

<!-- file: index.html -->

/* file: styles.css */

/* file: script.js */
// User Editable Region

function getCaloriesFromInputs(list) {
  let calories = 0;

  for (const item of list) {
    const currVal = cleanInputString(item.value);
    const invalidInputMatch = isInvalidInput(currVal);

    if (invalidInputMatch) {
      alert(`Invalid Input: ${invalidInputMatch[0]}`);
      isError = true;
      return null;

    currVal = Number(currVal);
    calories += currVal;
