Toothpaste Recall

China toothpaste recall of "Excel" and "Mr. Cool" because it contains antifreeze and brake fluid.

And it's probably recycled stuff drained out of vehicles. I wonder what they are putting their oil pit in?

China

Didn't the trouble w/dog food come from China too? Isn't it about time US tried to control what we have been getting from China? Instead of worrying about someone trying to destroy US, we are buying things from them. Does this sound right? If a supermarket was selling something that wasn't any good I sure would not patronize them. But what can people do when the economy is so unsure? Look at the parking lot at Wal Mart! And it is like that everyday!

Thanks for the warning.

Not that it makes it any better, but to be accurate they did not contain antifreeze and break fluid. They contained a chemical used in those two products.
