    Food color is specifically tested for safety in food. And even that is open to debate.

    Fabric color cannot be used in food under any circumstances.

    Fabric coloring/dye can be very dangerous, and you should never use it on or in food.

    There is no way to tell them apart if they are unlabeled. In that event, you should discard both and replace them. Food color will not set properly or permanently in fabric, and fabric color could be toxic if used in food.

    Actually, food color makes a very nice dye on wool. But you are right, unlabeled dyes should be thrown out because some of the fabric dyes are toxic even to work with if not handled correctly.

    I have to add my voice to the chorus. You can't tell the difference by looking. Throw them out.
