Big food brands drop additives

This last week has seen three big companies drop three controversial ingredients.. Chipotle announced that its entire menu is now GMO free. Tyson announced it would phase out certain antibiotics from chicken operations and Pepsico said its taking aspartame (or Nutrasweet) out of its Diet Pepsi in the US but not the UK. At the same time, first lady Michelle Obama is partnering up with our friends at Boston Public Radio on the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. What does this all mean and will it make us healthier? WBEZ food reporters and producers Monica Eng and Louisa Chu are here to talk about it. (Photo: Flickr/Michael Saechang)
