Wal-Mart to Go Healthier, Much to Dismay of "People of Wal-Mart" Blog

Posted By on Thu, Jan 20, 2011 at 12:26 PM

This might be tough in the long run for the website that's partially made its trade on openly mocking the weight of Wal-Mart customers, although I guess this move won't help those patrons' fashion sense.

From Bloomberg:

The company said it will reformulate thousands of packaged food items by 2015, reducing the salt content by 25 percent and sugar content by 10 percent, and will remove all remaining industrially produced trans fats and partially hydrogenated oils.

“No family should have to choose between food that is healthier for them and food they can afford,” Bill Simon, chief executive officer of U.S. stores for Bentonville, Arkansas-based Wal-Mart, said in a statement.
