In a major victory for safer, healthier food, Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the California Food Safety Act, the first law in the U.S. to ban four harmful chemicals from candy, cereal, soda and other processed food sold and produced in the state.

Assembly member Jesse Gabriel (D-Woodland Hills) authored the law, which ends the food uses of brominated vegetable oil  potassium bromate, propyl parabenand Red Dye No. 3. These chemicals are linked to serious health problems, such as hyperactivity, nervous system damage and an increased risk of cancer.
