Pink-grapefruit juice drinks may contain bugs.

You won’t find it listed in the contents, but it is definitely there.
The insects are in the shape of an ordinary food colouring named cochineal extract, carmine, or carmines acid. The reddish color is derived from the insect known as Dactylopius Coccus Costa, whose diet is of red cactus berries.
The bugs are dried up and then ground into a fine powder that is used in a lot of processed foods with a pink, red or purple tint.
