Retailer phasing out some chemicals in various products

NEW YORK

Wal-Mart announced Thursday that it will require its suppliers to phase out about 10 hazardous chemicals from personal-care products, cosmetics and cleaning products sold in its stores.

It also will require the suppliers to disclose chemicals in those products.

The moves follow an announcement made by Procter & Gamble Co., the world’s largest consumer- product maker, earlier this month that it will eliminate phthalates and triclosan from its beauty products by 2014. In 2012, Johnson & Johnson pledged to eliminate phthalates, triclosan, formaldehydes and parabens from all its personal- care products globally.

But they'll say there was no issue with them, just doing it because.... well because.
