Excerpt:Â In the wake of WND's report of the long, deadly history of Chinese-made toothpaste, a Florida company today issued a nationwide recall for toothpaste it imported from China and distributed to wholesalers, warning the product could contain a poisonous chemical. Though no injuries or illnesses have been reported, Gold City Enterprise LLC of Hallandale Beach acknowledged the roughly 170,000 recalled toothpaste products may have the contaminant diethylene glycol â€“ a solvent used in antifreeze that killed 107 Americans when it was introduced in an elixir 70 years ago.
The company is urging consumers to stop using the products and throw them away, or return them to their place of purchase.
The brands in question are Shir Fresh Mint Flouride, Shir Fresh Ice Shir Mint Flouride and Shir Fresh Cool Shir Mint Flouride. They were all distributed in the South Florida area.
