Kraft Singles To Lose Artificial Preservatives

NEW YORK (AP) - Kraft is removing artificial preservatives from its most popular individually wrapped cheese slices
    
The change is the latest example of companies tweaking recipes as food labels come under greater scrutiny.
    
The change affects the company's Kraft Singles in the full-fat American and White American varieties, which Kraft says account for the majority of brand's sales.
    
Sorbic acid is being replaced by natamycin, which Kraft says is a "natural mold inhibitor."
    
Kraft's decision comes as more Americans try to stick to diets they feel are natural. That has prompted a number of food makers to change recipes.
    
Last week, for instance, Subway said it was removing a chemical from its bread after a food blogger named Vani Hari started a petition noting the ingredient is also used in yoga mats.

    Spokane sex trafficking victim gets second chance as shop owner

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.

    A former volleyball player for Washington State University says Jason Gesser made sexual advances toward her during a charity event for the athletic department. "I thought I did something wrong, I thought that I could hurt their family," said Alyssa Wold-Bodeau.

    Police impersonator attempts to pull over Spokane woman

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.
