Two years ago, Change.org hosted a petition that asked Kraft to voluntarily get rid of the artificial food dyes in all its foods. Despite some good social media attention, the petition didn’t get far. Now, there’s a new petition on Change.org asking Kraft to remove the artificial food dye specifically from the kid favorite Macaroni & Cheese, and this petition seems to be doing better.
In this video, Lisa Leake from 100 Days of Real Food and Vani Hari from Food Babe explain the difference in the ingredients between the U.K. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese the U.S. version and do a taste test to see if they could tell the difference.
I’ve signed the petition. It currently has more than 15,500 signatures and needs about 9,500 more to be delivered to Kraft. The petition that circulated two years ago didn’t get delivered because not enough people signed. Let’s make sure this one gets delivered. If we don’t speak up, food companies will never make changes.
