Diets in Review Question

Where can I find confirmation of the FDA statement on the link between artificial food dye and hyperactivity?

I found it interesting that this statement was not on the home page of the FDA site. Given that they are in place to protect consumers, even a sentence about this would seem appropriate. Of course if I am in error, I'll stand corrected...

This question is about FDA Rules Artificial Food Coloring Is Safe for Most

The FDA reviewed a number of studies that examined hyperactivity and artificial food coloring. You can find these materials here: http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/CommitteesMeetingMaterials/FoodAdvisoryCommittee/ucm149740.htm

The FDA statement quoted in the post was originally published in The New York Times article cited in the post (you can find it here: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/30/health/policy/30fda.html).
