An executive exodus is under way at Whole Foods, as Amazon.com Inc. AMZN -0.29%integrates the pioneering natural grocer into its retail empire.

More than a dozen executives and senior managers have left since Amazon acquired Whole Foods last year, according to former employees and recruiters steering them to new jobs. People who have left include leaders of the bakery, produce, sustainability and local-foods divisions. 

Some veterans have left even though higher-ups asked them to stay. Others say they were pushed out after the deal was announced but before it closed, as Whole Foods sought to tighten command.

Whole Foods Founder John Mackey: Obamacare Is Fascist, Not Socialist

Having made a controversial statement comparing Obamacare to socialism in 2009, Whole Food's Founder John Mackey told National Public Radio that the massive healthcare overhaul is "more like fascism."

In an interview that airs Wednesday in two parts, Mackey, a self-described libertarian, was asked by NPR's Steve Inskeep to revisit his 2009 assertion that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is socialist.
