MandMs(KPLR) – The dyes that give M&Ms their colors are coming under fire. One woman says the artificial food coloring made her son hyperactive.

Renee Shutters has launched a petition calling on the Mars Candy Company to remove artificial food coloring from M&Ms.

She wants the same plant-based coloring used in America that’s used in M&Ms sold in England.

So far, more than 140,000 people have signed the petition. Shutters might have a chance since Kraft recently replaced artificial yellow coloring used in some of its Mac & Cheese products with natural coloring.
