Due to false claims made by some companies that colloidal silver can prevent, treat, or cure COVID-19, Whole Foods stores have removed silver from its list of acceptable ingredients. At this time, Doctor Plotka’s toothbrushes will not be available at Whole Foods.
Not to worry! Our brushes HAVE NOT been recalled. Doctor Plotka’s is still available in hundreds of independent stores and pharmacies, as well as direct through our website or on our Amazon store. The silver-infused flossing bristle toothbrushes you know and love are still safe and effective at eliminating 99% of bacteria on your brush.
We have never made such claims, nor do we use colloidal silver in our bristles (we use infused nanosilver particles for the naturally antimicrobial properties) but we understand Whole Foods is acting, as they said, "out of an abundance of caution” during these challenging times. Look for us back on the shelves of your local Whole Foods store with an alternative flossing bristle brush in the Fall!
