Victory! M&M's is removing artificial dyes after 200,000 consumers spoke up!
Feb 8, 2016 — Victory! Mars Incorporated will remove artificial dyes from all its food products including M&M's.
Our family is so excited that we won! We’ve been praying for this for years. 200,000 people took the time to sign my Change.org petition, and it’s so amazing to see companies do the right thing.
The President and CEO of Mars, Incorporated said: “Our consumers are the boss and we hear them. If it’s the right thing to do for them, it’s the right thing to do for Mars.”
This never would have happened without everyone who came to Change.org to sign my petition so thank you! You made a huge impact for families everywhere.
Thanks also to Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) who supported me through this process. You can read their full statement here. http://cspinet.org/new/201602051.html
CSPI just started a new petition asking the FDA to ban these harmful dyes once and for all! Please sign it. https://www.change.org/p/food-and-drug-administration-tell-the-fda-to-ban-harmful-synthetic-food-dyes
Together, we will continue to make a difference.
