(MEREDITH) – If you’re eating Peeps Oreos, you might want to look before you flush. Many customers are flooding the internet complaining that the food is not only turning their tongues and mouths pink, but their own waste too.

But why exactly is this happening? Well, an Oreo spokeswoman is fully aware and has the answer:

The Oreo Peep limited-edition sandwich cookies contain a bright pink food coloring, FD&C Red Number 3. We use this ingredient in the product consistent with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. Certain foods can temporarily color the tongue and inside of the mouth. This is common with brightly colored products such as ice pops, gelatins and drink mixes, as well as with certain fruits and vegetables, including beets and cranberries. Such foods can also temporarily color stool.
