Petition update

Big news from Nestle. What is M&M's waiting for?

Renee Shutters and CSPI

Feb 18, 2015 — Hello! It's been a while, but we're still working hard to get artificial dyes out of M&M's candies. The Center for Science In the Public Interest has met with the company since the petition launched and continue to work for this change.

I want to share big news with you all about Nestle. This big competitor to Mars (the company that makes M&M's), just announced it will remove artificial dyes from its candies by the end of 2015! That's right -- Nestle will remove artificial colors and flavors from Butterfinger, Baby Ruth, and Crunch by the end of the year. This is a big victory because consumers like you are telling the food industry that you don't want these artificial ingredients!

Seeing a competitor make these changes means the pressure is now really on Mars to take artificial colors out of M&M's candies!

Please take one minute to take action:

2- Call. Please call Mars and tell them to take artificial dyes out of M&M's.

Thank you!

Easter is coming up, so I'll share more ideas soon.
