Speaking of food regulation, here's an example of a private company voluntarily making changes to its products rather than being forced to do so by the coercion of the government. Reuters reports:
Walmart's efforts also include lowering the amount of sodium and added sugars in some of its food. The company said it cut 15 percent of the sodium in Great Value ketchup, an average of 15 percent of the sodium in Great Value canned vegetables such as corn, green beans and carrots, and more than 70 percent of the sodium in fresh steaks, roasts and certain other cuts of beef.
The company is also putting a "great for you" label on food it says is healthy, an approach that is different from the government-mandated nutrition labels.
