An Indian state has banned cotton candy after ruling that the treat loved by children around the world is dangerous.

Last week, Tamil Nadu, a state in the south, brought in the ban after laboratory tests confirmed the presence of cancer-causing substance Rhodamine-B in samples put forward for testing.

Earlier this month, union territory Puducherry banned cotton candy, while other states have started to test samples, BBC News reports.

The treat, also called buddi-ka-baal, meaning old woman's hair, is beloved by children worldwide, cropping up at fairs and amusement parks.

However, some Indian officials say it is deceptively harmful.
