What would we do without Bloomberg keeping us safe from ourselves?

Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced on Monday that 21 companies have voluntarily reduced the salt content in some of their products.
The improved products range from Butterball cold cuts to Heinz ketchup to some Starbucks breakfast sandwiches, according to Bloomberg.
The salt campaign — one in a series of novel but controversial healthy-eating initiatives on Bloomberg’s 11-year watch — takes aim at foods ranging from hot dogs to soup to popcorn. Twenty-one out of the 24 companies that were part of the initiative met one or more of their voluntary commitments, the New York City mayor said.
“These companies have demonstrated their commitment to removing excess sodium from their products and to working with public health authorities toward a shared goal — helping their customers lead longer, healthier lives,” said Bloomberg.
