“Use the damn toothpaste. Sheesh you big babies, no one’s ever died from it!”
Or in diplospeak:
“So far we have not received any report of death resulting from using the toothpaste. The U.S. handling (of this case) is neither scientific nor responsible,”
That may be true, may be true, but then shouldn’t it be listed as an ingredient??
But diethylene glycol was not listed on the label of the toothpaste found in the Miami store. Its presence was detected only because the F.D.A. began testing imported Chinese toothpaste last month. That precaution was prompted by the discovery in Latin America of tens of thousands of tubes of tainted toothpaste made in China.
