Although it won't tell you what the actual color is, the easiest solution appears to be to copy a cell that has the desired color, then select the cells you want to give that color, and then do Edit > Paste Special > "Formats", making sure no other checkboxes are selected (normally this requires de-selecting a few of them). Unfortunately, if there is any other formatting such as number formatting or borders that will have to be re-done, but in my case I merely needed to set the number format correct again, and everything was back to a uniform color.
