Item 3.03. Material Modifications to Rights of Security Holders.

The Board of Directors of Sara Lee Corporation, a Maryland corporation ("Sara Lee"), has approved Amendment No. 2 ("Amendment No. 2") to the Rights Agreement dated as of March 31, 2005 by and among Sara Lee and EquiServe Trust Company, N.A., a national association and successor in interest to First Chicago Trust Company of New York ("EquiServe"), as Rights Agent, as amended on June 1, 2002 (the "Rights Agreement"). As more fully described in and subject to the terms thereof, the Rights Agreement generally gives holders of Sara Lee's common stock rights to acquire additional securities of Sara Lee upon the occurrence of specified events. Amendment No. 2 amends the Rights Agreement to (a) eliminate all requirements that certain actions, approvals and determinations to be taken by Sara Lee’s Board of Directors be taken or approved by a majority of the "Continuing Directors," and (b) cure ambiguities and make certain other technical changes.

Amendment No. 2 deletes from the Rights Agreement provisions that are commonly referred to as "slow hand" provisions. Prior to the adoption of Amendment No. 2, if Sara Lee's Board of Directors desired to redeem outstanding rights after an unsolicited bidder became a 15% or greater stockholder, then a majority of Sara Lee's "Continuing Directors" was required to authorize such redemption. A "Continuing Director" was defined as any director who is not a "Future Director," which in turn was defined as any director who is not (a) a 15% or greater stockholder, and who is not an affiliate, associate, representative or nominee of a 15% or greater stockholder, or (b) a person who was not a Sara Lee director immediately prior to the time the bidder first became a 15% or greater stockholder; however, no director remained a Future Director for more than 180 days after the later of the date (i) the bidder first became a 15% or greater stockholder, or (ii) the director was elected to the Board. Amendment No. 2 eliminates all references to "Continuing Director" and "Future Director."


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
