Cochineal (Dactylopius coccus) is an insect in the suborder Sternorrhyncha, from which the crimson-colored dye, carmine, is derived. The insect is Beetles and it is used to dye our products such as: alcoholic drinks, jams, candy, fruit juice, sauces, makeup, cheese, yogurt and much much more! The purpose of this petition is mainly to force companies to stop using this dye demand action from our government.
