Photo: SearchRx and News 9FDA warns Dollar Tree about obtaining and selling potentially unsafe medications.The manufacturers of these products incur a number of violations.Manufacturers include Shanghai Weierya Daily Chemicals Factory and Hangzhou Zhongbo Industrial Company Ltd.The US Food and Drug Administration has sent out a warning letter to Dollar Tree after it received over-the-counter drugs produced by foreign manufacturers. These medical items, such as acne treatment pads and Assured brand drugs, have been found to be adulterated. Greenbrier International Inc., the owner of Dollar Tree, has been asked to stop selling this potentially dangerous merchandise.The letter addresses Dollar Tree‘s receipt of adulterated drugs from manufacturers and suppliers that had received warning letters of their own. These manufacturers were placed on “import alert” for multiple violations of manufacturing practices. Now the FDA is requiring Dollar Tree to put a new system in place to make sure none of their products are coming in from adulterated practices.

Ashley, director of the Office of Compliance in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research, released a statement, saying, “Americans expect and deserve drugs that are safe, effective, and that meet our standards for quality. The importation and distribution of drugs and other products from manufacturers that violate federal law is unacceptable.”He continues, “In this case, Dollar Tree has the ultimate responsibility to ensure that it does not sell potentially unsafe drugs and other FDA-regulated products to Americans. We will remain vigilant in our efforts to protect the U.S. public from companies who put the health of Americans at risk—whether through the manufacturing and distribution of products we regulate or other means.”

Randy Guiler, vice president of investor relations at Dollar Tree released a statement. “We are committed to our customers’ safety and have very robust and rigorous testing programs in place to ensure our third-party manufacturers’ products are safe,” he says.He continues, “Each of the items referenced in the report are topical, and not ingestible, products. As always, we are cooperating with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We plan to meet with the FDA in the near future and expect that our plans will satisfy their requirements in all regards.”

As the warning letter states, “failure to promptly correct the violations may result in legal action without further notice, including, without limitation, seizure and injunction.”The warning letter goes into detail about some of the products obtained by Dollar Tree from Shanghai Weierya Daily Chemicals Factory and Hangzhou Zhongbo Industrial Company Ltd. Both manufacturers have had multiple violations. These violations include not testing raw materials or drugs for pathogens and quality. In conclusion, the FDA encourages consumers and healthcare professionals to report any abnormal things that may have happened after ingesting medications from Dollar Tree.Proper BCS greatergood_ctg_abovevideoSource
