The Center for Science in the Public Interest today called on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to ban the use of certain caramel coloring in foods and sodas including Coca-Cola and Pepsi products, pointing to research that showed the additive caused cancer in lab mice and rats.

"If consumers want another reason to avoid soda pop, this is a good one," the group's Executive Director Michael F. Jacobson said. "It makes no sense to leave these in the food supply."
