A further 35 products have been withdrawn from sale because they contain the illegal dye Para Red, the Food Standards Agency has announced.
The Para Red dye is similar to Sudan I
The colouring, which may cause cancer, was found in cayenne pepper used as an ingredient in the products.
The FSA says the risk to health is very small, but people are not advised to eat products containing the dye.
The 35 products include a number of cooking sauces sold in Tesco, Asda, Waitrose, Co-op and Iceland.
Bart Spices earlier withdrew its ground paprika and Tesco its barbecue-flavoured rice cakes after the dye was found in them.
According to the FSA, Para Red is chemically similar to Sudan 1, a potential carcinogen that was found in a batch of Worcester Sauce.
That discovery prompted the recall of hundreds of products.
The FSA says its independent scientific experts have advised that while there is very limited data available about Para Red, "it would be prudent to assume that it could be a...carcinogen".
And Dr Andrew Wadge, the FSA's Director of Food Safety, said: "Para Red - like Sudan 1 - is an illegal dye that should not be in food.
"At the levels being found the risk is likely to be very small indeed, but it is right that food businesses are removing these products from sale."
The contaminated spice is thought to have originated in Uzbekistan and been supplied by a Spanish company.
