Kraft: Stop Using Dangerous Food Dyes in Our Mac & Cheese

Hi there, this is Vani Hari from Food Babe. I recently discovered that several American products are using harmful additives that are not used – and in some cases banned – in other countries. One of those products is an iconic staple that almost every American, us included, has had at one time or another: Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in the US contains the artificial food dyes Yellow 5 and Yellow 6. These unnecessary – yet potentially harmful - dyes are not in Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in other countries, including the UK, because they were removed due to consumer outcry. Kraft reformulated their product for the UK, but not for their fellow American citizens. It’s time we demand the same here in the US! Note: Yellow 5 (labeled asTartrazine) is also used in these products in Canada, and I'm sure they don't want to have it in their food either! That's why I'm petitioning Kraft to remove all dangerous artificial food dyes
 from their line of macaroni and cheese. Here are the reasons I'm asking Kraft to remove Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 from their Macaroni and Cheese. Artificial food dyes... - Are man-made in a lab with chemicals derived from petroleum (a crude oil product, which also happens to be used in gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt, and tar). - Require a warning label in other countries outside the US. - Have been banned in countries like Norway and Austria (and are being phased out in the UK). - Yellow 5 and Yellow 6 are contaminated with known carcinogens (a.k.a. an agent directly involved in causing cancer). - Cause an increase in hyperactivity in children. - Have a negative impact on children’s ability to learn. - Have been linked to long-term health problems such as asthma, skin rashes, and migraines. - Add absolutely no nutritional value to the foods we are eating and are solely used for aesthetic purposes only. To prove this last point I personally tested both the US and UK versions of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and found virtually no difference in color or taste (see the video above). I grew up eating this product, and it’s available at almost every grocery store across the country. Everyone deserves the same safer version that our friends get overseas!  Kraft Foods is the largest food company headquartered in the United States. If Kraft changes their Macaroni and Cheese, I know this could inspire other food companies across the US to finally eliminate dangerous artificial food dyes once and for all. Join me now and sign this petition.  Together we can make a difference.

Turrón @Suchard_es: utilizad chocolate de Comercio Justo #elCacaodeSuchard

“En estas Navidades, turrón de chocolate; en estas Navidades, turrón de Suchard”. ¿Quién no conoce esta canción? Si como yo eres fan del turrón de chocolate Suchard, ayúdame a hacerlo aún mejor. Existen muchos informes sobre las penosas condiciones de trabajo de las personas que cultivan y producen el cacao que compran las grandes compañías: trabajo infantil, trabajo forzado, explotación... Yo no quiero contribuir con mi dinero a estos abusos, y quiero poder comprar turrón de Suchard estando segura de que tratan bien a las personas que lo producen. Pidámosle a Suchard que fabrique su turrón con cacao de Comercio Justo. Así podremos disfrutarlo todavía más, sabiendo que cuando lo compramos estamos garantizando unas condiciones de trabajo dignas para las personas que producen el cacao en África y otros lugares. ¡Firma ahora esta petición y une tu voz a la mía! Si todos enviamos esta carta a Suchard, lograremos que el turrón que comamos las próximas navidades sea mucho mejor. Los niños y los trabajadores son obligados a realizar largas jornadas recogiendo y procesando la fruta del cacao. De acuerdo con diversos informes del Instituto de Agricultura Tropical, más de 284.000 niños de entre 9 y 12 años trabajan en granjas de cacao en África Occidental en condiciones peligrosas. De entre estos, más de 12.000 podrían encontrarse trabajando en condiciones de esclavitud, traídos de países como Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin y Togo. Si Suchard garantizara en su etiquetado que su cacao proviene del comercio justo, estaría garantizando que está pagando a los campesinos un salario digno, ofreciendo un precio mínimo por sus productos y certificando que en su elaboración no se ha empleado trabajo infantil o trabajos forzados. Además de firmar la petición, puedes seguir la página de la campaña en Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Que-Suchard-use-cacao-de-comercio-justo-para-su-turr%C3%B3n/276874015687634?sk=wall&filter=1

Kraft Foods: No al cierre fábrica Hueso en Ateca

No podemos aceptar el cierre de una fábrica que lleva dando trabajo durante más de un siglo a los habitantes de Ateca y a sus familias. Su cierre dejaria actualmente en la calle a 107 trabajadores en un pueblo de 2.000 habitantes.   Todos tenemos familiares que trabajan o han trabajado en la planta, y el cierre influye negativamente a todos los comercios locales y a todo el pueblo. No podemos aceptar que Kraft Foods quiera cerrar una fábrica que desde 1862 y hasta hoy está aportando beneficios a la empresa.   Por eso te pedimos que firmes y difundas esta petición para evitarlo.  Gracias.    PD: Y para contar con tu apoyo también puedes...

Bring Back Philadelphia Cheesecake Snack Bars

Kraft and Philadelphia discontinued their Cheesecake Snack Bars some time ago. They were delicious dessert bars that made you feel like you died and went to heaven. There is clearly a demand to bring these divine treats back, if you look on a few of Philadelphia's social media posts, the outcry cannot be denied. Lots of commenters wholeheartedly agree that Philadelphia/Kraft need to bring these back. Moreover, we just want a reason. WHY would they take these glorious delicacies away from us?

Bring back Bravo sauce!

Please don't take away Bravo spaghetti sauce! This has been around so long. There's still so many people that love this sauce.  This sauce is very special to me. My uncle used to make a dish that used this sauce and he passed away. I make this dish here and there and always think of him. Now I can't make this dish anymore :'( I can't believe it! Kraft Canada, bring it back! People are saying they will no longer buy your products. This will not be good for your company if this happens. Please keep it!

End Chocolate Slavery

"When (you) eat chocolate, you are eating my flesh". These are the haunting words of  Drissa, a former slave of the chocolate industry. The chocolate industry uses child slave labor to get it cocoa beans necessary for the chocolate. These children typically 10-14, but some are as young as 5. The children go willing to these plantations, typically located in the Ivory Coast, under the promise of money. Most of these children live in extreme poverty, so they are willing to anything for what we in the west would consider an unfair amount. The saddest thing is that they usually use that money to go to school, something we in the west consider to be a nuance. They are paid, but not only does this take years, the kids are barely paid enough for a bus ticket back to their home. They never get enough money to actually go to school, and get the education they desire. What's worse is the way they are treated. If they try to leave without the owner's permission, they are beaten. They are forced to wield dangerous tools (like machetes). They often carry 100 lb pound bags for miles, and are beaten if they go too slow.  They are locked in a barn to prevent escaping. They are seldom fed, usually forced to forage for there own food or eat scraps. These children are being exploited are and lied to. All this happens while the chocolate industry sits ideally by does nothing. They have acknowledged it, and claimed they were trying to help, but that was years ago and nothings come of it yet. Even when they are directly shown footage of the enslaved children, they are still not actively trying to stop this. This is a very complex issue, but it has a very simple solution: pay for their education. These children are being exploited, but remember, the only reason they're in that situation is because they want to go to school. I feel it's only fair to have the chocolate industry pay for that schooling. This would, in theory, help break the poverty cycle that forces them to these plantations in the first place. This would help the chocolate industry as well, as doing this would paint them in much better light in the eyes of many, including me. This wouldn't hurt them much financially either, as the industry is currently worth roughly 60 billion dollars. I realize that there are other solutions that can be done, but I feel that paying for there education would be an amazing long term solution to this problem.

Companies should provide labels on foods that contain gelatin.

I have been vegetarian all of my life. At least that's what I thought. as it turns out this ingredient harmlessly labeled as gelatin is not vegetarian, and definitely not vegan. According to PETA, gelatin is protein obtained by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, and/or bones with water. In essence, it’s made primarily from the stuff meat industries have left over —pork skins, horns, and cattle bones! Technically not even a food source, it’s used as a thickening agent in a number of products and gives food a soft, squishy consistency. I know it’s gross and I hate to rain down on your gummy bear parade, but you and your kids really shouldn’t be eating this stuff. I don’t even know why it’s legally permissible to be considered a “food” product. Some of the many food items containing gelatin are listed here. • Marshmallows Pop-tarts w/ frostingMini WheatsOther frosted cerealJell-OSkittles, Star-bursts, Jr. mints, Trident gum, M&M’s, Snicker bars•Peeps•Gummy worms/bears•Yogurts•Frozen vegetables (in a bag)•Icing/frosting•Cream cheeseSour cream•Coffee, milk substitutes•LozengesHostess cupcakes- Hostess brand    This disturbs me that when somebody makes me hot chocolate with marshmallows, I have to request that they make it again with no marshmallows. Most people don't know what it is even if they are meat eaters. I feel if everybody was informed of what gelatin is, nobody would eat it again.  Thank you if you signed the petition and read this. Please check out this link. I got a majority of this piece of writing from here. https://www.top10homeremedies.com/news-facts/gelatin-exposed-vegan.html All the best. -Ben-

Bring back Philadelphia GARLIC Dip!

If YOU are a jilted lover of the discontinued Philadelphia Garlic Dip, please sign this petition to ask Kraft to BRING IT BACK!  My friends, you know what I'm talking about. THIS was the only dip that mattered, the only dip with meaning, the only dip with true taste, the only dip that is worth dreaming about...and it is GONE.  Kraft thought they could just replace this with Herb & Garlic but they cannot fool us!  It is NOT the same.  (Herb & Garlic is the plain girl you date only because her hot Garlic cousin has left town!) Please, Kraft -  listen to us and bring back our favourite, delectable, creamy, garlick-y classic Philadelphia Garlic Dip and all will be forgiven!  Just think!  The happiness that this wonderful Philadelphia Garlic Dip brings to our lives will radiate out into the world!  Imagine being a part of contributing to world peace, balancing the economy, bringing Canadian families together, allowing single people to feel love again; all by satiating the pleasure centres that ONLY THIS DIP can satisfy! PLEASE BRING BACK THE IRREPLACEABLE PHILADELPHIA GARLIC DIP THAT WE LOVE!  THANK YOU!
