Condoms, pregnancy tests, other products recalled by Family Dollar for improper storage
Family Dollar is recalling Colgate toothpaste and mouthwashes as well as a variety of over-the-counter products, including condoms and pregnancy tests, after the products were stored at improper temperatures.
The chain said it was not aware of any consumer complaints or reported illnesses in its announcement, republished on the Food and Drug Administration website.
“Family Dollar has notified its affected stores asking them to check their stock immediately and to quarantine and discontinue the sale of any affected product,” the company said in its statement. “Customers that may have bought affected product may return such product to the Family Dollar store where they were purchased without receipt.”
The recalled Colgate products were shipped from May 1 to June 21 to a limited number of stores in 11 states: Arizona, California, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas and Utah.
The over-the-counter product recall, which includes some Trojan condoms and VeriQuick pregnancy tests, among other products, affects stores in most states. States that are not affected by the recall are Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii (there are no Family Dollar stores in Alaska and Hawaii). These products were shipped to stores starting May 1 to June 10, according to the recall.
