Up to now, many of the FDA-recalled, anti-freeze-laced Chinese toothpaste tubes have not carried readily recognizable brands. Tonight, that's changed.
Gilchrest and Soames, a supplier of bathroom toiletries well-known to business and leisure travelers to upscale hotels worldwide, has issued what is called on their website an "Urgent Worldwide Toothpaste Voluntary Recall."
The toothpaste in question carries the Gilchrist and Soames logo and comes in small sized, .65 oz/18ml complimentary tubes. Hotels are being asked to destroy inventory.
Hotel guests who may have received the tainted toothpaste and taken it home are advised to dispose of in a sealed plastic bag to prevent children or pets from accidentally ingesting it.
Since June 2007, the FDA has issues warnings that toothpaste from China may be tainted with dangerous chemicals.
