How much America is in American Cheese? For that matter, how much cheese is in “American Cheese”? Since when did processed “cheese product” stand for freedom? The FDA says this processed “American Cheese” can’t even be called cheese. So why does it deserve to be called “American”? America, we deserve better.Help us collect 100,000 signatures for our White House petition to remove America’s name from processed cheese. If we reach our goal, the White House will respond to this important national issue.

Help us collect 100,000 signatures for our White House petition to remove America’s name from processed cheese. If we reach our goal, the White House will respond to this important national issue. This Fourth of July, choose #DairyDoneRight, and save $1 on real, Tillamook Cheddar Slices.

Better yet...get a petition to force makers to make "American Cheese" REAL CHEESE!! several makers have versions that don't taste like wax or plastic...and can be called "Cheese" not Cheese food, or processed cheese food.

American cheese isn't American. We demand real 100% cheese to used with our name.

Don't let Elsie the cow down.

I have never liked American cheese in my life, even as a child, and think Tillamook is the best, but I really hope this petition is a joke!

There's nothing more "American" than crappy processed cheesefood. Maybe it was unAmerican in Abe Lincoln's day, but this is a new America... :-/

Why are you using the song "British Grenadiers" for the background music on your ad?

Where's the credit for this illustration? If you nabbed it from the internet without permission and added cheese slices to Heuser's artwork, that would be the cheesiest part of this story.

Hi Ben,
Thanks for reaching out with your comment. I think you'll be glad to know that we worked with the original artist (Jason Heuser) to modify his images and make them reflect our campaign. We even partnered with him to create a custom illustration (Betsy Ross riding a shark) for this campaign. We appreciate you looking out for the best interests of the artist.

All the best,
Amalya of the Tillamook team
