Counterfeit toothpaste toxins found12th July 2007
Counterfeit Sensodyne toothpaste, first found on sale at a car boot sale in Derbyshire, has been shown to contain a toxic chemical.
The Medicines Regulatory Agency has warned that the chemical, diethylene glycol, can be harmful to children, or people with liver or kidney problems.
Authorities have sequestered 140 tubes of the bogus toothpaste, which has English and Arabic lettering. It is not sold in shops, but has been found on sale in markets and boot fairs.
