Thousands of food products sold across the country, from kids’ treats to chewing gum, contain “Red No. 3” food dye — which has been linked to cancer in lab animal tests.

Yet the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will miss another deadline to get Red 3 out of our food.

It’s long past time for the FDA to do its job and protect our families from exposure to this toxic additive — and your voice will be crucial to making sure the FDA hears this call loud and clear. Tell the FDA: Remove Red 3 from the list of approved color additives in foods, dietary supplements and oral medicines.
