Dollar Tree Distribution Inc. is recalling certain products purchased from Family Dollar because of potential exposure to rodents.

This recall comes after last month’s FDA warning to consumers to throw out products from Family Dollar stores in a number of categories, including human food, because of a severe rodent infestation in a distribution facility in Arkansas.

“More than 1,100 dead rodents were recovered from the facility following a fumigation at the facility in January 2022. Additionally, a review of the company’s internal records also indicated the collection of more than 2,300 rodents between March 29 and Sept. 17, 2021, demonstrating a history of infestation,” according to the FDA’s public warning.

The products were distributed to Dollar Tree stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.

The recall includes food products, cosmetic products, dietary supplements and pet food and treats purchased from Family Dollar retail stores.
