I too, am allergic and my hands break out in bumps, my throat gets sore and if I continue to consume red #40 (unknowingly), I develop bronchitis and a sinus infecton. This along with MSG creates sleeplessness. A friend's daughter ate a dessert containing maraschino cherries and actually went into convulsions. She was only 3 years old. It is in sooo many things. Even the medicines(i.e. sudafed, some cough syrups).This is a very dangerous coloring derived of tar/coal and has been banned in Europe for many years. Read all labels and if it's red, pink or orange and you can't confirm the ingrediants........steer clear.
