Update: Important comment below points out that “exonerated” in the title is misleading. Upon reflection, I agree. Better title: “Food dye gets a pass, for now” And my fanatics comment is too extreme.
There is no proof that foods with artificial colorings cause hyperactivity in most children and there is no need for these foods to carry special warning labels, a government advisory panel voted Thursday. NYT
Probably won’t mollify the fanatics.
