Power steering fluid or ATF?

I was going to top off my power steering fluid and according to the cap it says "power steering fluid" but the fluid inside is pink like dex/mere type Automatice Transmission Fluid. I have an 07 e350 v10. Can someone point me in the right direction? I ruined a power steering pump once putting the wrong stuff in once so I'm really gun shy, leaving for a trip in two days. Thanks for any help!

Maybe I should rephrase the question:

Do you use power steering fluid or ATF in your power steering fluid in your rig?

Re: Power steering fluid or ATF?

yes, power steering fluid = Mercon-V for Fords starting with the Triton motors. That's what I use.

I think Ford started re-branding to prevent confusion, because you cannot use the newer ATFs like LV or SP for power steering. Looks like there's still some of the old-branded bottles out there:
