My message to Kraft, and the response following:
You say you are "working hard to make a delicious difference around the world". Why does that include partnering with Senomyx, whose food additives were developed from the human embryonic kidney cells of an electively aborted baby?
Thank you for taking the time to contact Kraft Foods. We understand and appreciate your concerns regarding Kraft and its affiliation with Senomyx.
Our highest priority is the safety and quality of our products and the safety of our consumers. All of the flavors we use are approved and deemed safe for food use by regulatory agencies, including the FDA. Our collaboration with Senomyx is to discover novel ingredients that positively impact food flavors, similar to what already is being widely used in foods and beverages today.
