SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (AP) -- Health officials said Friday they have seized more than 350 tubes of Chinese-made toothpaste tainted with a deadly chemical reportedly found in tubes sold elsewhere in the world.

Q. How do you know Toothpaste was invented in Texas?
A. If it had been invented anywhere else, it would have been called “Teeth-paste.”
Sounds like the Wal-Mart CEO had better call his office.
Wow this is crazy. I was just watching a Wife Swap episode and this really insane family who lived on a farm in Iowa ate only raw food, would not clean their home because of apparent disease in chemical clearners and used a homemade type of toothpaste of honey-butter and clay. Don’t even get me started on their homeschooling....not impressive, but I did not want to tell you everything without proof so I put the overview of this family below. Have fun reading...it is a hoot!!!
To Iowa farm-mom Barbara Haigwood (37), her husband, Michael, (39), and their two children, Lee (15) and Aleesha (13), a simple life is the best life. Living on a secluded farm with the nearest town 45 minutes away, the family prides itself on a self-sustained existence where food is grown, harvested and killed on their property with minimal help from the outside world.
The family lives by a raw food philosophy that includes raw beef and chicken, spoiled cheese and un-pasteurized milk. They brush their teeth with a mixture of home made honey-butter and clay and only shower on occasion, as “bacteria is their friend.”
Barbara bucks at the pressure she feels society puts on people to become prepackaged clones and tries to keep most forms of “mainstream” culture out of her household. She “unschools” her kids using farm chores as the classroom - if you call counting eggs a math class.
WalMart is filled with Chinese toxic waste, oops I meant food and cosmetics.
All perfectly safe and healthy. I mean otherwise the FDA would have banned importation of Chinese food products. I am sure the FDA and Department of Agriculture are right on top of this.
Shut up and pass the delicious monkfish.
I saw that episode too, and at the time I thought they were nuts.
I have decided to bite the bullet and to join an organic co op.
I used to think they were the nuts, now I will be one of them.
I just don’t think I could do everything they did. I mean I can see buying some organic stuff at the store, but to eat raw meat, not clean the house and not care about the education of my kids...not so much, but they did have some good ideas too. I just think that show is so funny especially when one family is always made out to be fools while the other family is pretty normal.
Walmart has no more then any other store in America.
Get a life :P
***I have decided to bite the bullet and to join an organic co op.***
Watch out for the E-Coli on the veges, Sallmonella in the raw eggs, and Trichinosis in the raw meat! Milk sickness in the raw milk!
Oh yes, Fungus in the raw grains!
Did I mention Hookworm, roundworm and tapeworm?
Make mine done!
Now I have matching tooth paste to brush with . See how well this all works out?
Pssss that is why you wash the food before you eat it :)
LOL. Cue classic Crest commercial.

Sautee, boil, bake, fry! or Nuke it!
I bet you didn’t think your ping list would be this busy.
Please remove me from the China ping list
I had no idea, but I think it is VERY important for everyone to know about.
