Bacteria-loaded toilet paper creates stink in Jamaica

(Jamaica Gleaner) Confusion reigned on Tuesday in the local manufacturing sector as there was a mad rush by retailers to return products to local toilet-paper manufacturers after the Bureau of Standards Jamaica (BSJ) on Monday published what has been described as a preliminary list of acceptable brands.

The list had been published after BSJ tests conducted on toilet-paper brands found levels of bacteria which could lead to infections in users.

One clearly peeved supplier, who spent the day staving off anxious retailers, complained that the BSJ had failed to be proactive after The Gleaner last month published allegations that there was substandard toilet paper with severe health implications circulating in the public domain.
