The following news is from the Food Product Design on July 25, 2013.

Dannon is being criticised by the Center for Science in the Public Interest for using cochinial extract which is extracted from cochineal insects in their yogurts. CSPI is suggesting that they use berries instead of bugs.
Dannon has just arranged to sell their yogurts in Starbucks, who removed the carmine from their drinks, because of public critisism.
Carmine is now required to be listed on lables because of allergies. The CSPI is asking that this declaration also include the term, insect derived.
