Yellow No. 6 and Red No. 40 have been linked to allergy and hypersensitivity in humans. In animal testing, excess Yellow No. 6 was associated with chromosomal abberation and increased incidence of cancer. According to the CSPI, Red No. 40 led to DNA damage and a subsequent increase in the incidence of tumors in animal studies; human toxicity studies, however, are currently lacking. Blue No. 2 has been linked to an increased incidence of brain and bladder tumors in animal testing. Human toxicity studies are currently lacking.
