What Family Dollar products are being recalled across the US?

The US Food and Drug Administration announced 21 July that Family Dollar issued a nationwide retail recall on around 400 products regulated by the agency. The voluntary recall is due to products “being stored outside of labeled temperature requirements,” according to the FDA. The products had been “inadvertently shipped to certain stores” between 1 May 2022 and 10 June.

Products include brand name painkillers, cough syrups, cold and allergy medicines. As well as personal hygiene products from lotions and sunscreens to shampoos, soaps and deodorants along with mouthwashes, throat sprays and toothpastes. The recall was issued at the retail level and the FDA has provided a full list of products that may have been affected by the mishandling.
