Today, the New York Times reports – guess what? These toothpastes have been found on the shelves of stores in the U.S. Some even have the toxin on the ingredient list – some – do not. According to the Times, “the FDA warns that the Chinese toothpastes have a “low but meaningful risk of toxicity and injury” to children and people with kidney or liver disease.”
The FDA warning lists the brand names impacted. Says to discard these. If it is not one of the listed brands, look at your toothpaste label. If it is made in China – throw it out. If the ingredient list contains certain chemical names [these are listed on the FDA warning too] – throw it out.
So, first pet food. Then cough syrup. Now toothpaste.
