Family Dollar issued another recall for several over-the-counter drug products improperly stored and shipped to an undisclosed number of stores.
Seven different Advil products were included in the recall because they were stored “outside of labeled temperature requirements,” according to a notice posted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Family Dollar said it told impacted stores to “check their stock immediately” and “quarantine and discontinue the sale of any affected product,” according to the recall notice.
