After an FDA inspection revealed a rodent infestation at an Arkansas facility, Family Dollar has issued a voluntary recall for its products.
According to CNN, the FDA discovered a few rodents after an inspection at a Family Dollar factory, so #Roomies may have to find another dollar store for granny.
After an FDA inspection revealed a rodent infestation at an Arkansas facility, the business issued a voluntary recall last week.
“Various products purchased from Family Dollar Stores throughout six states within the previous year may be tainted and hazardous to use,” according to the recall.
The recalled items included everything from pharmaceuticals to pet food.
The numerous goods were also offered in “hundreds of stores” in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee, according to the news release.
Family Dollar also indicated that it is currently unaware of any customer complaints. “Family Dollar is sending letters to its affected locations, requesting that they inspect their stock promptly and quarantine and stop selling any affected products.”
Customers who purchased contaminated items should return them to the Family Dollar shop where they were purchased without a receipt, according to the business.
CNN reports that some stores were also closed. “We take incidents like this very seriously and are committed to providing our consumers with safe and high-quality products.” According to spokesman Kayleigh Campbell, “we have been fully collaborating with all regulatory agencies in the resolution of this concern and are in the process of remediating the issue.”
