The FDA has issued a toothpaste alert this month ... some toothpaste brands made in China may be poisonous!
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning on June 1, 2007, to consumers to avoid using tubes of toothpaste labeled as "Made in China." For a list of toothpaste brands included in the alert, see the FDA Press Release. These brands did not receive the American Dental Association (ADA) Seal of Acceptance, and may contain the poisonous chemical diethylene glycol (DEG) which is used in antifreeze and as a solvent. Torrey Hills Family Dentistry is committed to putting your health first, and using only oral care products that have received the ADA Seal of Acceptance. For your information, here is the most up-to-date list of accepted products.
