Colgate Items Recalled From Family Dollar Were Incorrectly Handled During Storage

Due to items being stored outside of the acceptable temperature range, Family Dollar is recalling specific brands of Colgate toothpaste that were distributed in 11 states.

The impacted goods include Colgate’s Optic White toothpaste and mouthwash, according to a recall notice released by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The items were distributed between May 1 and June 21 in Arizona, California, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, and Utah, according to the agency.

The products were not described as having been stored for how long or at what temperature in the recall notification.

The recall notice that Family Dollar released earlier this summer has been expanded with the announcement of this month’s recall. According to the FDA, Family Dollar claims it has not received any consumer complaints or reports of illnesses connected to the recall.

Family Dollar’s parent company, Dollar Tree, Inc., declined NPR’s request for a comment on the recall.

In order to verify their stock and immediately stop selling the toothpaste and mouthwash, Family Dollar claims the business has alerted all of the retailers that will be affected by the recall.

The FDA advises anybody who may have purchased the recalled goods to return them to the Family Dollar locations where they were purchased, even without a receipt.

The chain of multi-stores recalled approximately 400 over-the-counter items in July, including toothpaste, lip balms, lotions, condoms, deodorants, and more. The goods, which were delivered to retailers between May and mid-June, were also improperly kept.
