19. I'm not sure you would ingest Citrus Red #2, unless you
eat the orange peel:

======
Citrus Red 2, Citrus Red No. 2, C.I. Solvent Red 80, or C.I. 12156 is an artificial dye. As a food dye, it is permitted by Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1956 only for use in the United States to color the skin of oranges.<1><2><3><4> Citrus Red 2 is listed as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen, meaning that it is "possibly carcinogenic to humans".<5> However, it does not penetrate the orange peel into the pulp.
