Dollar Tree is a discount store that sells products at around $1.00. This includes things like medicines and drugs. A US government organization said that some of these drugs’ manufacturers did not follow safety laws to make these drugs.

The organization said that Dollar Tree recently received impure drugs from foreign manufacturers, and the drugs can be dangerous. The organization also said that Dollar Tree is selling drugs from manufacturers that have safety record problems.

Dollar Tree said that it wants to keep its customers safe, and it tests its products. The organization said that Dollar Tree needs a new plan to check for safety.
