Wal-Mart Urges Suppliers To Remove Toxic Chemicals From Products

July 20, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has called on its suppliers to remove eight harmful chemicals, including formaldehyde and triclosan, from their products. Developed in partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund, the list is part of the retailer's efforts to remove toxic chemicals from household goods. Also, the release of the list of chemicals follows the retailer's announcement in 2013 of its plan to ask suppliers to cut the levels of some substances in personal-care, cleaning, and beauty products, as well as encourage them to find alternatives.
