Drop Artificial Ingredients in US Like You Have in the UK!

Nestle recently dropped all of the artificial ingredients, including dyes that have been linked to hyperactivity, in the UK, and replaced as many as 80 chemicals with all natural sources such as carrot, hibiscus, radish, safflower and lemon.

Clearly such a move can be made without hindering the product, then why can't the United States have the same importance? We demand that Nestle USA give US consumers the same luxuries they provide other countries.

See this article for more information: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2109025/Nestle-ditches-artificial-additives-products.html

Nestle responded to my letter asking why they wouldn't drop artificial ingredients for USA customers, and this was their response- let them know this isn't satisfactory!

"Thank you for contacting Nestlé® Chocolate and Confections.

      Nestle UK proved that you can make a quality colorful product without CANCER CAUSING PETROLEUM AND CONTAMINANTS - without losing profits. Do you want to lose your customers? Because we are VOTING WITH OUR DOLLARS and going elsewhere - to companies that hear our preference for natural foods. Catch up, or get left behind.

      To let these food companies know that we need drastic change to what Americans eat in this country! We are coming for you so you better clean up your act or face serious financial disruptions. That goes for all these companies that feed this garbage to our children! DO YOU HEAR US???

      Kids don't need these artificial ingredients. Other countries insist on using natural ingredients - why shouldn't we?

      FDA approval is not reason enough to keep food dye in candy and foods.
