Fake Colgate banned by FDA hits NorthEast Stores from South Africa

 Dangerous food and health products that have killed people and children in Panama are now being pulled off shelves in four states.  They are showing up so far in dollar store like retail outlets and they have obvious signs of dubious origins.

The toothpaste was sold in discount stores in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
"The counterfeit toothpaste can be easily recognized because it is labeled as 'Manufactured in South Africa,'" according to a Colgate press release. "Colgate does not import toothpaste into the United States from South Africa. In addition, the counterfeit packages examined so far have several misspellings including: 'isclinically,' 'SOUTH AFRLCA' and 'South African Dental Assoxiation.'"
