Advil Sold At New York Family Dollar Stores Recalled
If you recently purchased Advil at your local Family Dollar store, there is a very good chance that it is part of a large recall.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drugs that don’t require refrigeration should be stored below 100 degrees Fahrenheit because drugs stored at high temperatures have a tendency to quickly lose their strength.
According to the FDA, Family Dollar has announced that it is recalling several varieties of Advil because it was stored at improper temperatures. Although Family Dollar says it is not aware of any illnesses related to the recall and has not received any complaints, the Advil products were not stored properly.
