You’d think sprinkles are harmless, but in Britain, they are illegal. Rich Myers the owner of a british bakery called “Get Baked” has been forced to pull a stop to his top selling items after regulators informed the owner
that the sprinkles were illegal.

He disclosed the recent setback on facebook calling it sprinkelgate. He has to make a choice that will decide the fate of his business. He doesn’t want to change his sprinkles because all of the other sprinkles in Britain are horrible and he doesn’t see what the problem is with the sprinkles.

The sprinkles use a food coloring that’s labeled in the US as FD&C Red No. 3. The US food and drug administration has found that a large dose of the additive has been found to cause cancer in lab tests on animals.The BBC reports that it also has been linked to hyperactivity in children.

The bakery has to make a choice shut down his bakery or take of his top selling items.
