While food coloring makes foods more vibrant and appealing, food colorings can be dangerous to your health. While there have been no proven long-term effects of the dyes, it has been linked to certain types of cancers and allergies. Food dyes are found in many items that you encounter every day such as gelatin desserts, pet food, sodas and other beverages and some meat products such as hot dogs and sausage.

A few other countries have placed a ban on certain food colorings, with the United States being furthest behind internationally in the area. With the potential harm from the dyes, many companies are trying to force the removal of food colorings from our foods.
