FDA Warns Dollar Tree for Stocking 'Potentially Unsafe Drugs'

Dollar Tree was issued a warning letter from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last week for receiving “potentially unsafe” over-the-counter drugs from foreign companies that the government says are not following proper manufacturing practices.

These offshore manufacturers produce Dollar Tree's Assured brand of over-the-counter drugs and other health care products, including acne treatment pads, sold at Dollar Tree and Family Dollar stores, according to the FDA. Randy Guiler, Dollar Tree's vice president of investor relations, said in a statement that the acne pad and an antibacterial wipe are the products he's “aware of” that come from the manufacturers cited by the FDA.

The agency says that some of these companies failed to test raw materials and the finished products before distributing them, while others falsified test results and had rodent feces in their facilities. These manufacturers have in the past received warning letters of their own from the FDA. Dollar Tree was notified when these warning letters were sent, the FDA says. The FDA has not issued any formal recall of the affected products.

"Protecting patient health and safety is our highest priority, and the FDA continues to investigate and take action against companies that place U.S. patients at risk,” Donald D. Ashley, director of the Office of Compliance in the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, said in a statement.

1. Sad truth is

When you are poor Dollar tree helps not enough money to survive and almost broke becomes I'm broke but at least my head isn't hurting so bad. Dollar tree has been busted for alot of shit like lead in toys and bad food,it is sick some people work two jobs and dollar tree is what gets them to be able to live before the next paycheck comes.

The rich abuse the fuck out of poor people,always chipping away people's sustenance for profit.
And being poor is expensive.

It's all financial abuse .
Profit is indeed theft.
