Hello everyone..I saw it on the news today//ands i just saw it again..have you all heard about the harmful chemicals in it..here is the article.. FDA has found a poisonous chemical, diethylene glycol (DEG), in certain toothpastes imported from China. The agency increased its scrutiny and testing of imported toothpaste and dental products after receiving reports in late May 2007 of contaminated Chinese dental products found in several countries, including Panama. The agency is warning consumers to avoid using tubes of toothpaste labeled as made in China and, through an import alert, is stopping all suspect toothpaste from entering the United States. FDA continues to investigate this problem and will take further action, as appropriate, to address this important public safety issue. List of Toothpaste Products FDA has identified the following brands of toothpaste from China that have been found to contain a poisonous chemical called diethylene glycol (DEG). The products typically are sold at low-cost, “bargain” retail outlets.

Well it's nice to know FDA isn't a brand I use, so I count myself lucky right now. I am careful about choosing my toothpaste too. (very)... Cheers for sharing, I hope they have to repay there users with something more than money. ~Joey
