A major recall has led a popular retailer, Family Dollar, to recall over 430 items and pull them from their store shelves for consumer safety.
This issue was that many of these products were stored improperly before arriving to Family Dollar.
The products were stored outside of their recommended temperatures.
This includes basic hygiene products like body wash, lotion, toothpaste, and balm.
More serious products included in the recall include over the counter medications like cough syrup and ibuprofen.
All items that are being recalled were shipped to Family Dollar locations between May 1 and June 10, 2022.
The FDA has issued an 11-page list of hundreds of products that you can read here.
The only states not impacted are Alaska, Delaware, and Hawaii.
