I’ve been asked to provide a link to my NPR comments on the Walmart announcement. Here it is.
I was also interested to read what Dan Flynn, the editor of FoodSafetyNews, just said about it.

Oh! I think your NPR segment was one of your best! You really made the point that about the root problems. Thankfully, NPR lets a guest get a few words out of her mouth before butting in, like so many others.
Thanks for moving the emphasis from the packaged foods to the fresh food too! That’s getting overlooked in most of the other responses I have read, such as the NY Times panel discussion I read earlier today.
I’m doing a Behind the Plate interview from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Foodstand, 115 5th Ave (between 18th and 19th), 6th floor. This is in partnership with the NYC Food Policy Center and Sweetgreen. Information about tickets is here.
