  • Approval of a color additive for one use does not mean approval for other uses. For example, no approved color additive has been approved for injection, a process used in some forms of tattooing.
  • It is rare to have a reaction to a color additive.
  • The FDA will take action against companies if there are violations. Makers of imported products are not subject to the same sanctions.
  • The FDA monitors reports of color related adverse reactions, so it’s important to report any side effects to the agency.
