Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

On and effective June 30, 2011, the Board of Directors of Sara Lee Corporation ("Sara Lee") approved amendments (the "Amendments") to the Bylaws of Sara Lee. The following is a summary of the Amendments:

• Section 2 of Article I has been amended to clarify that a special meeting of stockholders will not be convened if the sole item for consideration at the meeting is identical or substantially identical to an item of business that (i) was presented at a stockholder meeting held by Sara Lee in the prior 12 months, or (ii) will be presented at a Sara Lee stockholder meeting that has been called but not yet held;

• Section 10(a) of Article I has been amended to delete a provision stating that if the size of the Board is increased, stockholders generally have 10 days from the date the increase in the size of the Board is publicly announced to nominate a director for the newly created seat; and

• Section 2 of Article II has been amended to clarify that, in calculating whether a director nominee has received a majority vote for election to the Board, "abstentions" and "broker non-votes" are not counted as a vote either "for" or "against" that director nominee's election.

The foregoing is a summary of the Amendments. This summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Bylaws, as amended and restated and filed as Exhibit 3(b) attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
