242,000 cases (6.5 million boxes) of macaroni & cheese are being pulled off the shelves because they may contain metal contamination. The boxes in question have “Best When Used By” dates of September 18, 2015 through October 11, 2015 and were sold in the United States, Puerto Rico, and some Caribbean and South American countries, but not in Canada. On the boxes, under the expiration date will be printed “C2,” designating the factory where the contamination occurred.
According to the company, they received eight complaints. The products in question are 7.25 oz. box, Original flavor, 3-pack box of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor, 4-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor and 5-pack shrink-wrap of those 7.25 oz. boxes, Original flavor.
Another reason to avoid this dangerously legal food is the yellow 5 and yellow 6 food dyes. Both have been found to contain benzidene or other chemicals that cause cancer. Both cause hypersensitivity reactions. Yellow 5 causes genotoxicity, which means it damages the genetic information within a cell causing mutations, can halt cell reproduction and may lead to cancer. According to a 2012 study on the toxicology of food dyes, “The inadequacy of much of the testing and the evidence for carcinogenicity, genotoxicity, and hypersensitivity, coupled with the fact that dyes do not improve the safety or nutritional quality of foods, indicates that all of the currently used dyes should be removed from the food supply and replaced, if at all, by safer coloring’s.”
The “Health & Food” industry intentionally has very limited studies on the dangers of toxicity and, then, uses the excuse that not enough information is available to conclude if these are actually dangerous. I.E. They don’t do the study, then they use they use the excuse that there’s not enough studies. What a world. Yellow 5 and 6 are a slow death, banned in Europe. Please don’t eat this stuff. Tell your friends.
