Consumer Reports is warning customers that Red Dye No. 3, a known carcinogen, is used in the production of the popular purple and pink Peeps candy that are sold at this time of year for Easter. Earlier this year, CR urged Just Born Quality Confections to stop using the cancer-causing dye in Peep production, but the company has not yet made any preparations to do so.

“Parents should know that the purple and pink colored Peeps they may be putting in their kids’ Easter basket are made with an ingredient that is a known carcinogen,” said Michael Hansen, PhD, senior staff scientist for Consumer Reports in a news release. “Just Born Quality Confections should stop making its iconic marshmallow treats with this dangerous food chemical since other less risky alternatives are readily available.”

Despite the health concerns about Red Dye 3, the ingredient is found in Peeps Pink Marshmallow Chicks, Peeps Pink Marshmallow Bunnies, Peeps Lavender Marshmallow Chicks, and Peeps Lavender Marshmallow Bunnies. Red Dye 3 is also found in other products made by the company, including Hot Tamales candy, Peeps Hot Tamales Marshmallow Chicks, Party Cake Peeps, Peeps Fruit Punch Marshmallow Chicks, and Peeps Wildberry Marshmallow Bunnies.

“Red Dye No. 3 has been banned by the FDA from use in cosmetics since 1990, but inexplicably is still allowed in food,” said Hansen. “The widespread use of Red Dye 3 is particularly concerning since it is found in many products marketed to children who are especially at risk of developing health problems from exposure.   It’s time for the FDA to protect public health by getting Red Dye 3 out of our food.”

Through a petition to the business, Consumer Reports is requesting that customers contact the Peeps producer with a message.
