Chinese Toothpaste in the US

The FDA is now looking into banning Chinese imports of toothpaste into the US. But what brands are made in China.

Hard to tell.

Here’s the most info on the story.

A representative of Johnson & Johnson’s McNeil-PPC Inc., which makes Rembrandt toothpaste, could not be immediately reached.

A spokeswoman for Colgate-Palmolive, maker of Colgate toothpaste, said the company did not import toothpaste into the U.S. from China.

A Procter & Gamble spokeswoman said Crest brand toothpaste was American-made.

Lori Lukus, a spokeswoman for GlaxoSmithKline Plc’s consumer unit, said the company’s Aquafresh product was made in the U.S.

Four out of five dentists agree, no antifreeze in Crest, Colgate, or Aquafresh. Jury’s still out on Rembrandt. Interesting that reporters have to contact the spokeswomen of these companies to find this stuff out.
