Hi,

This link appeared on a parenting forum.. It is a news story about a 5 year old who became sick after brushing his teeth with Aquafresh kids toothpaste. His mom called the manufacturer and found out Peanut Oil is an ingrediant but because toothpaste isn't a 'food product' the oil doesn't have to be listed.

Please watch the clip and get the word out!!!!

Hi Mommytwo,

There is a discussion thread in Allergies in the News: http://www.allergicliving.com/forum/vie ... =aquafresh

The editor of Allergic Living, Gwen Smith, contacted Glaxo Smith Kline and it was confirmed that there is no peanut oil or peanut derivatives in Aquafresh. There is also a response email from the manufacturer. Make sure you read both pages of the link above.

See this link also (for a statement from Glaxo Smith Kline). Scroll down to July.
