A synthetic, coal tar derived orange dye. Used only for coloring surfaces and casings of frankfurters and sausage. Also see Food, Drug & Cosmetic Colors (FD&C).
Rarely used and only approved for sausage and frankfurter casings. FDA had planned on banning this additive, but ban was never finalized since no producers were using the colorant at the time.
