Australian State Bans Toxic China Toothpaste

Posted by Author on September 3, 2007

The Stuff, New Zealand, 3 September 2007-

An Australian state has banned imports of three brands of Chinese toothpaste, saying they contain potentially lethal levels of a toxic chemical.

The recall by Victoria state is the latest warning about Chinese-made imports that has raised international concerns about the quality of goods from toys to pet food, tyres and seafood.

The Victorian state government said the toothpaste contained a chemical called DEG (diethylene glycol) that is classified as a “toxic substance”. It said it will fine retailers up to $A61,350 ($NZ72,552) if they are found to be selling the brands.

Diethylene glycol is an industrial solvent used in paint and antifreeze and can cause kidney and liver damage.

China is Australia’s biggest trading partner and this week President Hu Jintao will be Sydney for an Asia-Pacific summit where he is expected to defend the “made-in-China” label. …… ( more details from Stuff.co.nz )
