toothpaste A lethal chemical called diethylene glycol (an engine coolant) was found in recent shipments of tooth paste from China to the countries of the Dominican Republic, Panama and Australia. So far the FDA is not saying what brands are involved, Crest and Colgate do not import from China. So far none of the tainted toothpaste has shown up here. It would be a good idea to start reading labels and not purchase any toothpaste imported from China.
