Not butter, I believe, but margarine.  During WWII, butter was truly scarce 
and was replaced largely by white margarine.  It looked a lot like lard and 
was considered a poor man's substitute for the real thing.  Adding food 
coloring to the margarine to disguise it as butter was considered a socially 
necessary lie in some circles.
