Brands to avoid at Dollar Tree
#1
https://gephardtdaily.com/business/fda-w...rom-china/
Nov. 16 (UPI) — Discount retailer Dollar Tree has been warned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that some of its over-the-counter drugs are coming from suspect foreign manufacturers.
The FDA sent a letter to Dollar Tree saying that some of its pharmaceutical products — sold under the name Assured Brands — were supplied by Chinese firms with a “pattern of serious violations” of U.S. law.

“FDA inspections of these foreign facilities revealed significant violations of current good manufacturing practice,” the warning letter, dated Nov. 6, states.
The FDA cited a recent inspection of a Chinese factory at which an acne treatment product was manufactured, and said inspectors there found failures to “conduct component identity testing” and “test each batch of drug for objectionable micro-organisms prior to distribution.”
The agency also noted an inspection visit to China-based Bicooya Cosmetics, where officials found the company wasn’t testing finished drug products or looking for evidence of rodent droppings at the manufacturing facility.
Randy Guiler, Dollar Tree’s vice president of investor relations, responded with a pledge for product quality.
“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 said.
Dollar Tree told the FDA it wouldn’t buy products from any company targeted by U.S. regulators. The agency, however, said that was “not always the case,” Business Insider reported Friday.

The [b]chocolate[/b] in six (6) 100 gram subsamples contains an average of more than 1.0 rodent hair per 100 grams, regardless of the size of the hairs or hair fragments.""

Same FDA, same rules.  Fancy brands will undoubtedly have much smaller fragments.  I like crunchy peanut butter.  I don't worry about what the crunchy parts are.  Most of the crunchies are peanut.
Say good night, Dick.

Probably more than we like to think about.  Even if a product label says it's made in the U.S., some of the ingredients may be from other.  Like the melamine (?) in those baby formulas and dog foods and treats (which killed my friend's dog before the word got out).

The problem is, we import so much crap that we don't realize how much we're taking on trust, and many companies just can't be trusted.

I try to stick with known American brands, but that's no real guarantee, either.

I drank a Mountain Dew once that had a human finger in it. I was a kid. I’m still here. But now I think about it this might explain a few things.
