While xylitol isn't dangerous to humans, it can be deadly to dogs. It's used in foods such as nut butters and sugar-free desserts, including "skinny" ice cream. Chewable vitamins, mouthwash and toothpaste may also contain the sweetener.

The warning came along with a video that cautioned dog owners to check the label of any human food or treats they are planning on giving their dog to make sure it doesn't include xylitol.

Public shame.

That's the tactic one Canadian grocery store used to get customers to ditch single-use plastics and instead utilize reusable shopping bags.

Shoppers who didn't bring their own bags to East West Market in Vancouver, British Columbia, left with groceries in plastic bags that read "Wart Ointment Wholesale," "Into the Weird Adult Video Emporium" or "The Colon Care Co-Op."
