These were sold in Sainsburys and Boots, I was expecting the article to say Poundland or something similar.

Luckily I don't use it but for all those that do, stop using it and take back to store for refund

Good ole Daily Mail - really well written article.

They post an article about dodgy toothpaste, then use an image for a different Colgate product - muppets.

"The 100ml tubes, labelled Colgate Cavity Protection, have been bought by thousands of customers at Sainsbury's and Boots stores."

I never noticed that mistake, just looked at the picture and realised it was the one we used and we bought it from Sainsburys. So do you think it's the toothpaste in the picture that has the problem or the one named in the write up?

Could be either way with that tabloids nonsense - personally, I'd go with phoning up Colgate to enquire.

i bought loads of these for £1.00 in sainsburys & using one at the moment!!!. Any one know the batch numbers effected ??
#8
Just spoke to a guy at Colgate and he said the fake tubes contain batch code 8037PL1115.

Apparently the code was copied from some genuine Colgate tubes, so if you find this code on the tube it could either be fake or genuine. He said you would know it was fake because the toothpaste tastes weird and there is quite a peculiar, pungent smell off of it. Either way, bring the tube back for a refund.

Not sure, I noticed the difference between product name and picture, and we have some of the pictured toothpaste
