F&C Red #6 cannot contain more than 20 parts per million of lead (also not more than 3 parts per million of arsenic or 1 part per million of mercury).
Lead may not necessarily cause cancer, but it is a dangerous element to humans.
Exposure to lead can cause serious health problems, from behavioral problems and learning disabilities to seizures and death.
