It's my understanding that PEG is a regular ingredient in most big name toothpastes--something about keeping all the other ingredients in suspension.

That's one of the reasons I love "Tom's of Maine"--especially the fennel flavor.  ;D

PEG isn't antifreeze......

I'd heard that the ingredient causing concern in the the Chinese toothpaste was brake fluid........??

Just a FYI:  Ethelene glycol is the "bad" poisonous antifreeze - as it breaks down it ruins kidneys (lots of dogs & cats drink it cause it tastes sweet).  Propylene (maybe mis-spelling both of these) glycol is used in ice cream, toothpaste, and the non-toxic antifreezes, etc.  Somehow the Chinese toothpaste got some ethylene glycol in it.  Definitely not good.

Right, and PEG, which was mentioned above, is polyethylene glycol, not ethylene glycol.  It's used as a wood treatment to prevent splitting and warping, but I'm not sure what its toxicity is.

The good news is if you happen to get antifreeze poisoning, the problem with it is that it gets filtered out so fast by your kidneys that they get all tore up by the crystals it causes but the treatment for it is to slow that filtering down and that is accomplished by getting the poor hapless victim, shall we say, innebriated and keep them that way until all the antifreeze is clear of their system.  Can't beat drunk on doctors orders and you can really mean it when you have to say it is for medicinal purposes!

I think they should have thought out their idea to take over the USA with tooth paste as they would be missing a big population in WV and TN & Kentucky as they only need enough tooth paste to cover their TOOTH :D  sling_shot smiley_hillbilly_tub_base smile_banjoman smiley_fiddler smiley_whacko

What do you mean throw it out!!!.  I would take it back where I bought it and make them buy it back.  They should pay for the expense of bringing it back too.  Those companies that deliberately or carelessly put nasties in the food should be paying.  They know how to keep our food safe and the processors should do it.

We have very few problems in the US.  I for one won't eat anything I know that came from China.  Do you think very many Chinese workers care a hoot about what happens using their products across the pond?

Food coming into this country should be checked.  So it would make the cost higher. Well be safer and our farmers will get to produce more.

So much for my rant.  This trips my trigger.

I was on a tour in China when we stopped by some farm workers that were watering greens with some of the most foul smelling water you'd ever seen. I asked the tour guide where the water came from, it was sewer water. I made sure not to eat any salads the rest of my time there.

Of course the lettuce that made so many people sick was grown in California. They were spraying it with sewage water from a dairy farm.

My son was all geeked about "Agent Cool Blue".   It is a mouth rinse, that turns the placque blue, and then you brush until you dont see any blue.    They recalled it and issued a warning that it was toxic for some reason.  Great, back to "get your hiney in there and brush!".  Better than glowin in the dark I guess.

In many countries outside the US, the most widely used fertilizer is human manure.  Makes you want to update your passport huh.

Yeah. Makes rearing a baby coon seem like child's play - (and it is sorta).

I don't really wanna talk about the germs which find their way into our mouths when we go out to eat. Much worse than your own kitchen which is a virtual germ factory too. ::) I just have to block it out or else I can't enjoy my steak dinner when we eat out.  :-\
