(NEW YORK) — Family Dollar shoppers should check their medicine cabinets and bathrooms for any recently recalled products.

The variety dollar store chain issued a voluntary recall of hundreds of products from toothpaste and lip balm to deodorant and lotions due to them being stored incorrectly.

The products were “stored and inadvertently shipped” to some stores from around May 1 through June 10, and were “stored outside of labeled temperature requirements,” the U.S. Food and Drug Administration stated.

Among the hundreds of items are everything from Dayquil and Crest toothpaste to Purell hand sanitizer and Coppertone sunscreen. Click here for a full list of the affected products.

Family Dollar said it has not received any consumer complaints or reports of illness related to this recall.

“Family Dollar has notified its affected stores asking them to check their stock immediately and to quarantine and discontinue the sale of any affected product,” the FDA said in the recall. “Customers that may have bought affected product may return such product to the Family Dollar store where they were purchased without receipt. This recall does not apply to Delaware, Alaska, Hawaii as no Family Dollar stores in Delaware received any products subject to this recall and Family Dollar does not have any stores in Alaska or Hawaii.”

Any questions can be directed to Family Dollar Customer Service at 844-636-7687 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET.

The FDA urged customers to contact a health care provider if they experience any problems that may be related to using these products.

“Adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of this product may be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail or by fax,” the agency said.
