    You mean that evil megacorp WalMart is going to force their suppliers to change their contents!
    Outrageous, just another example of leftist Marxism!

    Actually taking the salt and surgar out make the food more bland and the people will just buy other brands. As to cost, the producers have been absorbing the increase of matial costs for the last 2 years and their margin is very slim. I cannot see anything there but more consumer price increases. It is nice to say they are working towards that goal but the weather is a determining factor on food prices. Slim product, high prices, lot of product, low prices.

    About time she thinks of the real people in this country. I hope it makes walmart carry a bigger selection of fresh produce of a higher quality.

    And snaps to MO and two thumbs up for not bowing to the unions on not supporting and helping to promot a NON union shop.
