Toothpaste allergic reaction fatal?18th January 2008
A teenager who died after she brushed her teeth may have had a severe allergic reaction to the Aquafresh toothpaste she used.
Francesca Sanna, 19, suffered from severe asthma and allergies. An inquest heard that she died after going into anaphylactic shock. GlaxoSmithKline, manufacturers of Aquafresh, said: "We receive less than a handful of complaints of allergic reaction to Aquafresh Mild n Minty each year, all of which have been of a mild and a localised nature. To put this in context over 1.9 million tubes are used by consumers in the UK every year."
