Colgate Will Not Recall Toothpaste in China

December 9, 2005

CHINA: Toothpaste producer Colgate said it would not recall its products amid reports in the Chinese media that its toothpaste contained a chemical that might cause cancer under certain conditions. Colgate-Palmolive (Guangzhou) Co. issued a statement saying its products had been certified by health and drug authorities worldwide, and were safe and effective. It said that the testing results published by the Evening Standard in the UK did not involve toothpaste or any warning against Colgate. A Crest toothpaste produced by P&G’s Guangzhou branch was also found to contain triclosan. Both Colgate and Crest remain on the Chinese market but sales volume is declining.
