The FDA has issued a warning and recall for toothpaste made in China. The recalled products may contain diethylene glycol, which is an ingredient found in antifreeze. It may cause kidney or liver damage if consumed in large quantities. 5 ounce tubes of Colgate that were made in China or Africa have now been added to the recall list.
Miller says the Colgate recalled was made in Africa or China and things could’ve gotten lost in translation.
“There are substances along the same lines have the same names or close to the same names. Someone or the manufacturer may have accidentally placed that in the toothpaste.”
If your toothpaste has been recalled you should throw it out. It is believed the diethylene glycol was used in the place of a more expensive sweetner.
