I ran across this consumer alert from the FDA and thought it would be good for you the consumer to be aware of this:
|Â||The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on June 1 issued a warning to consumers to avoid using tubes of toothpaste labeled as made in China. The agency issued an import alert to prevent toothpaste containing the poisonous chemical diethylene glycol (DEG) from entering the country. DEG is used in antifreeze and as a solvent. The toothpastes thatÂ have the ADA seal of approval are.Â Cooldent Fluoride; Cooldent Spearmint; Cooldent ICE; Dr. Cool, Everfresh Toothpaste; Superdent Toothpaste; Clean Rite Toothpaste; Oralmax Extreme; Oral Bright Fresh Spearmint Flavor; Bright Max Peppermint Flavor; ShiR Fresh Mint Fluoride Paste; DentaPro; DentaKleen; and DentaKleen Junior. Manufacturers of these products are: Goldcredit International Enterprises Limited; Goldcredit International Trading Company Limited; and Suzhou City Jinmao Daily Chemicals Company Limited. The products typically are sold at low-cost, â€œbargainâ€ retail outlets.
