There is a new proposal to outlaw the sale of foods containing Red Dye No. 3, Titanium Dioxide, Potassium Bromate, Brominated Vegetable Oil, or Propyl Paraben in california.

https://ktla.com/news/california/california-bill-could-ban-the-sale-of-skittles-hot-tamales-candy-and-more/

I find it EXTREMELY ironic that california has legal recreational weed but is considering outlawing candies. Not that weed causes cancer, it's just more that they allow something that is very much forbidden in some other states but yet they're going to regulate candy.

I wonder if this actually would lead to companies removing these substances, or if they would just manufacture special california only candies.

It's similar to California's Proposition 65 regulations that say things that are "known" to cause cancer or birth defects mist be labeled as such. How they determine this when almost everything seems to be linked to cancer anymore, I have no idea. It seems like everyone just ignores the labels anyway. Pretty hard to ignore if they completely remove the products from the market.

Always remember that the former President was dumber than the dumbest person you've ever met by a wide margin

You're not allowed to use that dye in cosmetics because of the risk of cancer so it's probably a good idea not to ingest it, either.

I canít wait until they legalize salt again. But it was good-natured because I was supposed to have been stabbed through the heart by the sword of Damascus, which they knew about. But they also pushed papers to let the guy who did it become my legal guardian, me being a 35 year old man at the time. Maybe now california franchises can salt my food again.

lol it's just one proposal by a state assemblyman, it's a long way from there to "they're going to regulate candy" and even if the bill went through that's not the same thing as "banning skittles" since skittles could simply alter their recipe.

I like both of those candies but I vaguely agree with regulating them. People like heroin. Let them buy that, right?

Sounds like they want to ban a specific color, OP, not candies. I suspect the Skittles company will persevere.

To bring anything to market you probably have some sort of animal tests on any novel or new material to classify how much cancer something is going to give you. It's a question of how much cancer at what sort of dose for nearly anything that can make it inside your body. We're a big bag of DNA just waiting to go wrong.

Because the California law says any increased chance of cancer is cancer causing and because most things cause cancer if they get inside you, we get the joke that everything in California needs labeled with the sticker. There's a subset of the joke for real hazcom aficionados that you shouldn't buy anything without a California cancer sticker because it means the the manufacturer willfully doesn't know what the thing is made out of so the contents can't be known to cause cancer.
