Improper storage creating unsafe products caused the recall of six varieties of Colgate oral healthcare and 41 over-the-counter health products, including condoms, sold in Family Dollar stores.

According to the company-written, FDA-posted recall notices, the products were stored outside of their required temperatures, then ”inadvertently shipped to certain stores on or around May 1, 2022 through June 10, 2022.”

This is an extension of a July recall of over-the-counter products from Family Dollar, which is owned by Dollar Tree, for the same reason. If you bought any of the products in the original recall or the extension, you can return it to the Family Dollar of purchase for a full refund.
