Discount retailer Family Dollar has announced a voluntary recall of more than 430 products – ranging from toothpaste and painkillers to antiperspirants and shampoo – due to products being stored outside of label temperature requirements. The good news is that if you purchased the recalled items, you should be able to get a refund.

The items were inadvertently stocked and shipped to select stores from May 1, 2022 to or around June 10, 2022, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. As of last week, Family Dollar has not received any consumer complaints or disease reports related to this recall, the FDA said in a July 21 posting on its website.
Family Dollar has notified affected stores asking them to check their inventory immediately and to quarantine and discontinue sales of all affected products. Customers who purchased the affected products can return them to the Family Dollar stores where they were purchased, with or without receipts. The retailer will then issue refunds, Denver affiliate ABC reported.
This recall does not apply to Delaware, Alaska, or Hawaii, as no Family Dollar stores in Delaware received recalled products, and Family Dollar has no stores in Alaska or Hawaii.

Earlier this year, Family Dollar voluntarily recalled certain skin care products that had not been stored within the temperature limits stated on the label, Chicago’s ABC-7 reported.
