U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer Urges ‘Dollar’ Type Stores to Stop Selling Many OTC Drugs from China
The Coronavirus is not mentioned anywhere within this news report, but I imagine this must have something to do with there being every precaution to prevent the spread of the virus here in the United States.
According to a news report, there are 85 stores between Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, Erie, and Niagara counties that are subject to Schumer's directive. Schumer said this according to the report:
“We are here in Cheektowaga to make a public health push related to questionable products on Dollar store shelves that could be really bad for people,” Schumer said. “After we pushed Dollar Tree stores in Manhattan on this issue, they were seen clearing the shelves, but we can’t do this store-by-store, the company needs to do it on its own and the Food and Drug Administration needs to keep the pressure on. The stores across Western New York should not be allowed to continue receiving these questionable or even dangerous over-the-counter drugs, and that’s where Customs and Border Protection need to hold them to account, too.”
