Sudan Red 1 – carcinogenic dye found in household brands

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has issued a list of Irish products that contain the food dye Sudan Red 1.
The Food Standards Agency in the UK have identified up to 350 food products implicated.
I just checked the kitchen and none of the listed products are in the cupboard. *phew*
So, if that dye causes cancer and has been recalled, why not recall cigarettes?
Later… Maura has more to say on it including links to the slow food website and other goodies!
