In an effort to "stay woke" and because of the call for racial equality, the black chef on the packaging of Cream of Wheat will be removed.
Parent company B&G Foods said months ago that it was going to initiate an immediate review of the packaging and the decision was to remove the chef's image. This move follows public outcry, particularly in the black community of the killing of George Floyd and other black people at the hand's of white police officers.
But the Cream of Wheat box isn't the only thing that will change. Aunt Jemima and Mrs. Butterworth's packaging will also get a new look, as well as Uncle Ben's rice.
