Traces of a toxic chemical have been found in counterfeit versions of Sensodyne toothpaste on sale in the UK.
The fake batch is being sold at markets and car boot sales, but not in shops, said the Medicines Regulatory Agency.
The fake tubes have both English and Arabic lettering, while the real ones use only English in the UK.
Sensodyne’s owner, GlaxoSmithKline, said the authorities had seized 140 of the counterfeit tubes, which were first found at a car boot sale in Derbyshire.
The chemical in question, diethylene glycol, can be toxic to children or people with impaired livers or kidneys. [more here]
