Toothpaste Contamination Story Hits The US

Yesterday, I linked to a BBC story about toothpaste from China being sent to central America being contaminated with a toxic component of engine coolant. Today, the BBC is reporting that the FDA is checking to see if it made it into our supply of toothpaste here.

It might save companies a few bucks in bulk to outsource this to China as well you know. China has some serious problems with safety, quality control and there doesn't seem to be the ability or will to do anything about it. Right now we are being used as lab rats. It's not just food items. What about our consumer goods, our clothing? It's ok though. Corporate profits are up, so we shouldn't worry our pretty little minds.
