An Indianapolis-based company that provides toiletries for hotels is recalling complimentary, Chinese-made toothpaste after samples showed some it contained a toxic chemical.
Gilchrist and Soames says today it is recalling its 0.65-ounce tubes with the name Gilchrist and Soames on it. Some samples showed it contained diethylene glycol, which is found in antifreeze and is toxic to the kidneys and liver.
The toothpaste was made in China by Ming Fai Enterprises International.
The company says the Food and Drug Administration is not aware of any U-S reports of poisonings from the toothpaste.
Gilchrist and Soames supplies hotels in several countries.
