Mom Bloggers Demand Kraft Remove Food Dye From Macaroni and Cheese

Bloggers Lisa Leake and Vani Hari are demanding that Kraft remove two artificial colorings, yellow number 5 and yellow number 6, which give the boxed mac and cheese its distinctive orange coloring. The duo created a petition on Change.org demanding the change. The women say that the dyes are not used in Kraft's European products and that they are also linked to allergies, hyperactivity in children and migraines. Kraft makes fourteen kinds of mac and cheese: different varieties are sold in different countries.

ABC News reports on the issue:



Kraft issued this response to ABC News: "The safety and quality of our products is our highest priority and we take consumer concerns very seriously. ... We carefully follow the laws and regulations in the countries where our products are sold ... So in the U.S., we only use colors that are approved and deemed safe for food use by the Food and Drug Administration."
