WASHINGTON - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Thursday it was reviewing the safety of triclosan, a widely used antibacterial agent found in soap, toothpaste and a range of other consumer products.

The agency stressed there are no grounds to recommend any changes in the use of triclosan but said some recent studies merited a closer look.

I couldn't find the specific article with the link....but I'll google it out of curiosity. I think half the stuff they have out there on the market is probably crap.

I remember the days before triclosan in soap. I'd rather not go back. There were some very ripe smelling people back then, even with the deodorants of the time.
