The famous dish is coming under scrutiny according to CBS News after a recent report stated chemicals such as phthalates were found.

At one point the chemical was banned from teethers as well as bottles.

During the testing of several mac and cheese dry mixes and other products, phthalates was detected.

Dr. Leonardo Trasande said, “The findings are not surprising or inconsistent, unfortunately, with increasing literature that has documented phthalates easily getting into and staying in especially dairy products.”

The chemical is normally used in food packaging materials and unfortunately has led to have a negative affect on the male reproductive system.

The doctor suggested to eat more fresh fruits and veggies.

He also mentioned, “Don’t use the dishwasher to clean plastics. Try glass and stainless steel as storage alternatives.”
