Today Walmart announced that it was going to require it's suppliers to follow a standardized food "sell by" date guideline. That's because nationally there are no federal labeling standards for food other than baby food. Confusion over when food is spoiled and when it is fine has led to tons of food being wasted every year.

Bexar county has some of the worst infant mortality rates in the state. The state is only slightly better than the U.S. average, but we are worse than more than 20 other countries in the world. 

"For all the money, we put in more than any other country yet our outcomes are frankly pitiful," says Dr. Alexander Kenton a Neonatologist for Methodist Children's hospital.

The city along with other health stakeholders has relaunched its Fetal Infant Mortality Review Board today to address this isssue.
