Family Dollar initiated a voluntary recall Friday of more over-the-counter medical products after an investigation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found the products were stored and shipped outside of the temperature requirements specified in labels.
The recall lists about 40 products, ranging from pregnancy tests, condoms, marijuana test kits, first aid kits to toothpaste and adhesives.
In a second announcement from the FDA on Friday Family Dollar expanded the list of recalled products to include six Colgate toothpastes and mouthwashes.
The recall includes products that were shipped to stores between May 1 and June 10, the FDA said.
Family Dollar has not reported any consumer complaints or reports of illness related to this recall. The FDA says the recall is being done “out of an abundance of caution.”
Family Dollar notified the affected stores and asked employees to remove inventory of the damaged merchandise.
Customers who purchased a damaged product can return it to the Family Dollar store where it was purchased without a receipt.
The recall does not apply to stores in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii. None of the stores in those states received the recalled products. There are no family dollars in Alaska and Hawaii.

Customers with questions about the recall can contact Family Dollar customer service at 844-636-7687 between 9-5pm EST.
Adverse reactions or quality problems that occur with the use of the recalled product may be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
