In brief: No

It takes only a moment to make something up and put it on the internet.
I can't think of a mechanism and for once I couldn't even find this obviously-phony claim on the internet. Simple chemicals that your children can play with dying Easter eggs aren't going to roast you pancreas.

In brief: No clear connection

There have never been any studies that clearly link food coloring to pancreatitis.
Some people are allergic to certain food additives but, there is no clear evidence that food coloring cause pancreatitis like gallbladder stones, alcohole and some medicines can.
