Blue 2 or Indigo Carmine, which has been linked to brain tumors and can boost hyperactivity.

If it’s unsafe to use on your skin, how can feeding them to your children be safe?
The artificial coloring in this snack is made from yellow 6, which is a derivative of petroleum, and the ‘cheese’ flavoring which contains both methyl benzoate and ethyl methylphenidate.
Methyl benzoate is considered by the Toxicology Data Network as mildly toxic when ingested in high concentration levels.
