The Food and Drug Administration announced that it has issued a warning letter to Dollar Tree Inc. about potentially unsafe drugs being sold on the discount retailer's shelves. The letter, sent to Greenbrier International Inc., which does business as Dollar Tree, describes multiple violations of manufacturing practices used to produce Dollar Tree's Assured Brand over-the-counter drugs, as well as other drugs sold at Family Dollar and Dollar Tree stores. Both chains are part of the Dollar Tree portfolio. Among the violations are the receipt of inferior-quality drugs from manufacturers and contract manufacturers that received FDA warning letters in 2016, 2018, and 2019, which would place these manufacturers on import alert. Dollar Tree was made aware of these letters when they were sent. The warning letters sent to contract manufacturers "show a pattern of serious violations of the law, such as not testing raw materials or finished drugs for pathogens and quality." The FDA has made recommendations to Dollar Tree for corrective action. Dollar Tree, along with Dollar General Corp. were fined a total of $1.2 million this summer for selling obsolete, expired goods. Dollar Tree stock is up 19.6% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index is up 23.4% for the period.
