Why not 'US'?

A complete play on words, us meaning you and me and also the United Stated. This is in reference to Kraft foods and their Macaroni and Cheese product. A product that I remember as a kid being one of my favorite meals. I know many kids still feel this way, but you might not now.
The fact is, that in 2008, Kraft removed artificial colorings, like yellow #5, and chemical sweeteners, like aspartame, from the products that they distribute in Europe, Australia, and other developed countries due to consumer concern over scientific studies that link these synthetic ingredients to hyperactivity and asthma in children. But, they haven't done the same thing here in the U.S.! Why would they not do the same for us?
I certainly was surprised about this and I am sure you are. Want to help change this? You can sign a letter via Momsrising.org to the Kraft CEO Irene Rosenfield, who is also a mom, requesting to remove these ingredients from their products in the United States. Just click the link below.

Join us in sending Kraft CEO, Irene Rosenfeld, a letter asking that Kraft value the health of our children as highly as they value the children in other countries. And please then share this email with friends and family so that they too can send a letter.
