Toothpaste from China recall?
The FDA is considering the withdrawal of several brands of toothpaste made in China from shelves in the market place because they contain traces of a chemical know to be hazardous to health (CNN Breaking News).
Diethylene glycol ( an industrial solvent used in engine coolants and anti-freeze) was found in toothpaste sold in the Dominican Republic and Panama .
In the 36,000 tubes of possibly contaminated toothpaste were tubes of toothpaste marketed for children with bubble gum and strawberry flavors sold under the name of “Mr. Cool Junior.”
FDA is checking toothpaste imports from other countries, including China. In Australia there is some evidence of contaminated toothpaste.
