Den­tal kits de­stroyed

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

THOU­SANDS of teeth­whiten­ing kits with the po­ten­tial to cause gum and mouth blis­ters were seized in Hilling­don.

Hilling­don Coun­cil’s trad­ing stan­dards team se­cured a court or­der for the for­fei­ture and de­struc­tion of more than 12,000 prod­ucts at Uxbridge Mag­is­trates’ Court on Jan­uary 27.

The prod­ucts – worth more than £500,000 – were seized from a Sip­son home. Of­fi­cers were tipped off in May by a res­i­dent who al­lowed Piotr Kaszub­ski, to store prod­ucts at his home, with a view to sell­ing them with him. The prod­ucts con­tained 5.9% hy­dro­gen per­ox­ide, mean­ing they could only be sup­plied to den­tal prac­ti­tion­ers, the limit for con­sumer prod­ucts be­ing 0.1%.

Of­fi­cers found the goods were be­ing sup­plied on­line.

Mr Kaszub­ski has re­turned to his na­tive Poland.
