Charlotte Bloggers Petition Goes Viral
CHARLOTTE, NC - "We did not expect the media attention that happened pretty quickly," explains Charlotte Blogger Lisa Leake.
Leake and Vani Hari are home after a media blitz that's taken them from CNN to Dr. Oz.
Their petition to get dyes removed from Kraft Mac and Cheese has gotten over 265,000 signatures in just a couple of weeks.
The bloggers say the dyes cause hyperactivity in children and have been linked to other health problems.
But the FDA has approved dyes as safe for being used in food products.
And while Doctors like Scott Spies agree there's no scientific evidence that's found the dyes harmful.. he questions if they're necessary in food products.
"I think that they probably are not. And I personally don't consider them something that I would want in the foods I eat," Spies says.
