    Two North Carolina women who are also food bloggers learned about two additives contained in the popular Kraft Macaroni & Cheese that are banned in various European countries yet still are in the product on U.S. store shelves. They started a petition to have the additives removed. So far, more than 220,000 people have signed the petition asking Kraft to remove yellow dye 5 and yellow dye 6 from the popular food. The two women, Lisa Leake and Vani Hari, point out that the same food does not contain these additives when the product is shipped abroad because of stricter food safety rules that the public demanded. The women say that the dyes are only “aesthetic purposes.” But they point to studies conducted by the Center for Science in the Public Interest that reveal that the two food dyes have been associated with hyperactivity in children, allergies, migraines and possibly even petroleum-based cancer.
