From the page: "needlessly exposing millions of Americans to a chemical that causes cancer," said Michael F. Jacobson, the Washington-based group's executive director, said in a statement. "The FDA needs to protect consumers from this risk."
The FDA has no reason to believe there is any immediate risk from the substance and is reviewing the group's petition, said Douglas Karas, an agency spokesman, in an e-mail. A consumer would have to drink more than a thousand cans of soda in a day to match the doses administered in studies that showed links to cancer in rodents, the FDA said.
The American Beverage Association has called the consumer group's effort to have the coloring banned a "reckless attack" and said there's no evidence the chemical causes cancer in humans.
Diana Garza Ciarlante, a spokeswoman at Atlanta-based Coca- Cola, referred questions to the beverage association. Gillian Galasso, a spokeswoman at PepsiCo in Purchase, New York, didn't respond immediately to a phone message seeking comment.
The consumer group commissioned lab studies of samples of products including Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc.'s Dr Pepper and Diet Dr Pepper and Whole Foods 365 Cola from Washington-area stores. Pepsi's products, Diet Coke and regular Coca-Cola had levels that were high enough to require a warning notice in the state of California, according to the release.

Beautiful interpretation of "Chega de Saubade" By Dizzie Gillespie.
The film tells the story of Chronos, the personification of time and the
inability to realize his desire to love for a mortal. The scenes blend a
series of surreal paintings of Dali with dancing and metamorphosis. The
target production began in 1945, 58 years before its completion and was
a collaboration between Walt Disney and the Spanish surrealist painter,
Salvador Dalí. Salvador Dali and Walt Disney Destiny was produced by
Dali and John Hench for 8 months between 1945 and 1946. Dali, at the
time, Hench described as a "ghostly figure" who knew better than Dali or
the secrets of the Disney film. For some time, the project remained a
secret. The work of painter Salvador Dali was to prepare a six-minute
sequence combining animation with live dancers and special effects for a
movie in the same format of "Fantasia." Dali in the studio working on
The Disney characters are fighting against time, the giant sundial that
emerges from the great stone face of Jupiter and that determines the
fate of all human novels. Dalí and Hench were creating a new animation
technique, the cinematic equivalent of "paranoid critique" of Dali.
Method inspired by the work of Freud on the subconscious and the
inclusion of hidden and double images.
