iTunes has been deleting my play counts - why? How do it stop this?

The first time I noticed this was a couple of weeks ago. I highly value my play counts and take them seriously. I never reset them. I first noticed it on song that was supposed to be on my top played not being there. The last I remembered it had 650 or so plays (I play songs on repeat for long periods of time). I searched for it in the rest of my library, and noticed the play count was zero. I first thought it was a fluke and didn't think much of it. Then i noticed it on other songs that I know I've played many times on this computer. Then I got really annoyed. I think ordered the songs by play count to see how many were effected. The even more annoying thing it shows the last played but play count is gone. I've attached a screen shot to show what I'm talking about. Does anyone have any idea as to why this is happening? I'm really annoyed because I don't remember the play counts of the affected songs, but it's information I still want to have on record. I want to prevent this from happening to any more songs... anyone have any insight? Perhaps know how to restore playcount information? Unfortunately I haven't backed up in a while. I'd also like to point out even songs without a last played present - I know for a fact I've played them on this computer multiple times.
