    I have discovered you use tartrazine ( yellow5) in your Kraft Dinner . I realize it\'s because it is cheaper but that is disgusting . I have always loved K D but now I can\'t eat it . Everything is always about money and not people . There are other things you know you can use . I\'m sorry but I will have to pass this info onto my friends Thank you Germaine

    To add insult to the American consumers Kraft does not use these artificial colors f. ex. in Europe, because they are banned there as carcinogens. Kraft uses annatto. How Kraft feels it is ok to feed carcinogens to American children is beyond me. Germaine, make your won with real cheese or buy Trader Joe\'s. Much better ingredients than feeding petrochemicals to your kids.
