Tainted Chinese toothpaste in US market

NEW YORK: Chinese made tainted toothpaste which was discovered in the United States now seems to be much more widely distributed than originally thought.
Federal health officials, who had made the discovery last month, had warned that it would most likely be found in discount stores.
But the New York Times says the toothpaste has been distributed much more widely.
Roughly 900,000 tubes containing a poison used in some antifreeze products have turned up in hospitals for the mentally ill, prisons, juvenile detention centers and even some hospitals serving the general population.
The toothpaste was handed out in dozens of state institutions, mostly in Georgia but also in North Carolina, the report said quoting state officials.
Hospitals in South Carolina and Florida also reported receiving Chinese-made toothpaste, and a major national pharmaceutical distributor said it was recalling tainted Chinese toothpaste.
The Food and Drug Administration has advised consumers to discard all Chinese-made toothpaste, regardless of the brand.
