Toxic toothpaste

What? Man buys toothpaste at shady convenience store. Mis-spellings througout the box. Man get sick. Obviously it is the toothpaste!
Somerville man buys Colgate at a convenience store, and it has the poisonous chemical diethylene glycol, which is found in anti freeze. What this does to your body? It is a central nervous system depressant and kidney and liver toxin.
What I don't get is how is this happening? A "botched batch" of toothpaste? Like someone at Colgate was like ha wouldn't this be funny if we made poisonous tootpaste, put it in a crap box that says from South Afrlca, and needs adolt supervision. Then whoops it got shipped to atleast 5 different states.
It seems to me like there are too many mistakes for this to be an accident,

Note to self: Do not buy toothpaste that has good "germ defence" and shipped from South Afrlca.
