Illegal GMO Wheat in Kraft Mac & Cheese?

The information I just uncovered about Kraft Mac & Cheese is CRAZY.  

It's been almost 2 months since I hand delivered thousands of signatures to Kraft's front door requesting the removal of artificial dyes from their Mac & Cheese. The people inside that I met with said they'd keep the conversation open and research my questions that went unanswered  but I haven't heard a peep from them - not a word. Of course I've followed up via email and voicemail and baring an impromptu visit to their headquarters again - I'm not sure if they'll ever willingly want to talk to me in the near future or any of the rest of the 288,000 people who signed the petition.

Kraft's refusal to keep a conversation open doesn't surprise me, considering their tone and the nature of my initial meeting at their headquarters. (You can read the full inside story of that visit here). They didn't send out the people who make decisions to speak with me (like the head of Mac & Cheese) - instead Kraft sent their corporate spokespeople to discuss what I believe is a very serious issue. An issue that has been broadcast all over the World including countries like Mexico, Brazil, Canada, U.K., Finland, Japan, and in almost every city in the United States. This is an issue that has brought out the truth, thanks to several different media agencies who asked for a medical opinion about the harmful effects of artificial food dyes and who agreed there are risks associated with consuming them.

Their refusal to listen and change their products is all about money. Kraft cares more about their bottom line than the health of millions of children everywhere who they are selling the boxes of Mac & Cheese to.

It was just announced that Kraft's CEO Tony Vernon made 49% more this year than he did last year. This fact kicked me right in the face. These are millions of dollars that could be used to stop the production of artificial food dyes. These are millions of dollars that could be used to improve Kraft's product line for the safety of Americans. These are millions of dollars that could send a statement to us that Kraft really does care about the safety of their consumers (like they've said in their canned written statement already).

While Kraft has reformulated their Mac & Cheese for other countries using safer ingredients and natural dyes - they continue to exploit and feed Americans dyes made with petroleum linked to a myriad of diseases and GMOs.

But wait - you must be thinking - what?! There are GMOs in Mac & Cheese?  YES. It is now confirmed - and it's not just any old GMO.
