Looking for Glycerine for Dragon breath

    I recently bought a baby dragon ( hand puppet ) and decided to pimp it up with red LED eyes and simulated dragon breath using a scaled down version of a disco fog maker. I decided to experiment with an e-cig for this and researched the chemicals used which are propylene glycol and glycerine. Via a link on Wikipedia I came across a horrendous story from 2007 about mass deaths in Panama and Bangladesh because of an unlicensed (ex tailor) pharmaceutical manufacturer in China.
    Anyone heard of this article in New York Times ?

    There was a baby food poisoning scandal, but in china itself.
