The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and several other groups have filed a petition with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requesting the revocation of the color additive regulation regarding the use of titanium dioxide in foods.
The petition claims these color additives pose risks to human health, particularly for children. The EDF argues that synthetic food dyes have been linked to hyperactivity and other behavioral problems in children and may also be linked to cancer.
The FDA is currently seeking comments from the public on the petition, which will be considered before any decision is made.
