One of the most outrageous examples of this are M&M's.
That's because not only do they use safer ingredients in M&M's in other countries, but they lied to us…
Mars Candy (the maker of M&M's) told the media they were going to remove artificial colors from their candy in 2016,
But THEY NEVER DID. (1)
This was 7 Years Ago!
And even worse…
They sell safer M&M's in other countries WITHOUT all these artificial colors:
M&M's in U.S. contain 10 artificial colors.
M&M's in U.K. contain ONE.
Why don't they sell the same M&M's everywhere?
The food regulations in Europe and U.K. are stronger. Europe takes a "precautionary principle" approach towards food additives that are potentially risky. They ban or add warning labels to these additives for their citizens.
