Sara Lee Corp. announced it is committed to reducing salt an average of 20% over the next five years across its key categories of fresh bread, hot dogs, lunchmeat, breakfast foods and cooked sausage.

This initiative will encompass Sara Lee’s top food brands, including Jimmy Dean®, Ball Park®, Hillshire Farm® and Sara Lee®. The effort builds on the successful salt reduction the company has already accomplished, which includes the launch of a line of lower-sodium lunchmeats earlier this year and sodium-reduced options of fresh bread products.
