Some of the main focus items that we hope to achieve when shopping are essential. Some of us may look for healthier options while others choose to aim for the least inexpensive version of a product.

Others may have a goal of stocking up on particular items regardless of a certain brand or price.

Whether we look for the expiration date, the ingredients on the item or even calories, we want the best for ourselves and our family.

What do we do when there's a massive recall at a chain store across in the country?


Family Dollar is warning consumers about their recent recall of many everyday items.

This popular store brings in millions of customers in a year. With stores throughout the country, Family Dollar is a hot spot for all age groups. I personally like to shop there for cards, car fresheners and other unique items that I find at an inexpensive price.

These discount stores typically have cheaper prices than other popular retail shops. Family Dollar may be a go to establishment and some rely on the inexpensive prices that they offer.

The FDA released a recall in regards to medications, toiletries and more.


The Food and Drug Administration in the US has released a recall. There is a large number of over the counter medications along with toiletries products that are included in this recall which were sold at Family Dollar.
