U.S. panel finds limits to food dye data on behavior

SILVER SPRING, Maryland (Reuters) - Current data has not established that artificial food dyes cause hyperactive behavior in the general population of children, a Food and Drug Administration advisory committee said on Thursday.

The committee was set to vote later Thursday on whether foods containing the dyes need a warning or other information on packaging, or if more studies are needed. Critics say the dyes worsen hyperactivity in some children.
