So my Colgate Toothpaste says " Made in Mexico " WTF !!!!!!!

I have used Colgate from day one till now. I am brushing my teeth this morning and for unknown reason decided to see where it is made. Low and behold its Mexico. I checked my old tube and its made in Canada. Guess I need to read where every single item I purchase is made........

Why do you think you feel energized after brushing your teeth?

Answer: It's the cocaine!

Uh, who cares? It's baking soda, peroxide, fluoride and some flavoring in an aluminum tube . . . not exactly the beacon of technology.

QC standards so you aren't using a toothpaste made with ethylene glycol like in China

Kinda makes sense. Fluorine, used to make Fluoride, comes largely from Mexico. And China, in fact. They are the 2 biggest sources, IIRC.
