Chemical Used to ‘Soften Plastics’ Found in Most Boxed Mac and Cheese

from The Anti Media:
Lovers of boxed mac and cheese, prepare to take a hit. According to a recent test conducted in a lab in Belgium, if you’re eating the powdered cheese that comes in the box, you’re probably also eating a group of chemicals called phthalates that are used to soften plastics.

The Coalition for Safer Food Processing and Packaging bought 30 different cheese products from store shelves in the U.S. — 10 different kinds of mac and cheese with cheese powder, five different types of processed sliced cheeses, and 15 varieties of natural cheese — then shipped the package to the Flemish Institute for Technological Research. The institute did not list the brand names of the products they studied.
