WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Congresswoman Anna Paulina Luna (FL-13) introduced a legislative package that aims to make Americans’ diets healthier by banning certain color additives and high-fructose corn syrup. The Do or Dye Act and the Stop Spoonfuls of Fake Sugar Act seek to restrict toxic food dyes like Red No. 40 and Yellow Nos. 5 and 6 and the use of high-fructose corn syrup in foods produced in the United States. These bills amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to classify foods containing these ingredients as adulterated. 

“It is time that we stop allowing unaccountable corporations and the complicit Food and Drug Administration to poison our families. Far too many Americans are suffering needlessly from type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, and mental health conditions as a result of artificial and harmful ingredients that are in nearly every refrigerator and pantry in our country,” said Congresswoman Luna. “Not only are we consuming spoonfuls of high-fructose corn syrup every day, but many of the foods and snacks we consume have dyes linked to an alarming number of health conditions.”

Congresswoman Luna continues her fight to ensure that our government is no longer complicit in the poisoning of Americans.
