Walmart makes a controversial decision about the sweet corn it sells.

Walmart says it will sell genetically-modified sweet corn.

The retail giant says its research has not turned up any safety reasons to restrict the sale of genetically-altered sweet corn.

The genetically-modified corn reduces the need for insecticide use.

Health and environmental activists say there has not been enough research to rule out potential health risks.
