The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a major recall of various products sold at Family Dollar Stores in six states: Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi and Tennessee.
The recall includes, but is not limited to:
FDA-approved dietary supplements
Cosmetics, including skincare products, baby oils, lipsticks, shampoos and baby wipes
Animal foods, including kibble, pet treats and wild bird seed
Medical devices, including feminine hygiene products, surgical masks, contact lens cleaning solutions, bandages and nasal care products
Over-the-counter medications, including pain medications, eye drops, dental products, antacids and other medications for both adults and children
The FDA said they began an investigation into their West Memphis, Arkansas, distribution facility after receiving a consumer complaint in January.
Inspectors found live rodents, dead rodents, “rodent feces and urine, evidence of gnawing, nesting and rodent odors throughout the facility, dead birds and bird droppings, and products stored in conditions that did not protect against contamination,” the FDA announced this week. After fumigating the facility, more than 1,100 dead rodents were discovered.
Between March and September of last year, the company’s internal records showed it found more than 2,300 rodents in the facility, the FDA said.
Any and all pet food — whether it’s a can of Alpo or a bag of the “good stuff” — has been recalled from 404 Family Dollar stores in the South because a distribution center in Arkansas had an apparent rodent infestation.
“There are numerous hazards associated with rodents, including the potential presence of salmonella,” the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) noted in its recall announcement.

Trump: “Does anybody really believe the California Recall Election isn’t rigged?”
The corrupt Democratic fix appears to be in for Tuesday, Sept. 14 recall election seeking to remove California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D).
Even President Donald Trump said in a Monday statement California gubernatorial recall election is “no different” from the 2020 presidential election “scam.”
“Does anybody really believe the California Recall Election isn’t rigged?” Trump’s statement began. “Millions and millions of Mail-In Ballots will make this just another giant Election Scam, no different, but less blatant, than the 2020 Presidential Election Scam!”
Backed by millions of dollars from the Democratic machine and such mega-donors like George Soros, voters are already seeing evidence of another stolen election. Soros donated at least $1 million to the cause.
Since this election is being conducted by mail, it is unlikely that final results will be available on election day.
“We have a voter integrity board all set up—most of these are lawyers,” chief candidate Larry Elder said. “So, when people hear things, they contact us. We’re going to file lawsuits in a timely fashion.”
Although downplayed, ignored or slanted by mainstream media reports, hundreds of voters throughout California, attempting to cast their ballot at polling locations were told they had already voted.
Some poll workers are reporting many had made the same claims. Many were instructed to submit provisional ballots, which are cast when there is uncertainty about voting eligibility. Many were not informed but some returned later when told by others they could.
The recall is intended to present voters with two questions. The first will ask whether Newsom should be recalled from the office of governor. The second will ask who should succeed Newsom if he is recalled.
A majority vote is required on the first question for the governor to be recalled. The candidate with the most votes on the second question would win the election; no majority is required.
Recall supporters say Newsom mishandled the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, did not do enough to address the state’s homelessness rate, and supported sanctuary city policies and water rationing.
Forty-six candidates, including nine Democrats and 24 Republicans, are running in the election. The candidates to receive the most media attention and perform best in polls so far are YouTuber Kevin Paffrath (D), 2018 gubernatorial candidate John Cox (R), radio host Elder (R), former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer (R), California State Board of Equalization member Ted Gaines (R), former Olympian and television personality Caitlyn Jenner (R), and Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R).
In a March 2021 response, Newsom called the effort a “Republican recall — backed by the RNC, anti-mask and anti-vax extremists, and pro-Trump forces who want to overturn the last election and have opposed much of what we have done to fight the pandemic.”
Gavin Newsom’s Sugar Daddy Tries to Bail Him Out of California Recall With $1,000,000
New York billionare George Soros, the money man behind buying elections, Antifia and Black Lives Matter and other anti-American causes, recently gave $500,000 to help fund California Governor Gavin Newsom’s fight against his recall.
This in addition to the previous $500,000 he gave the organization “Stop the Republican Recall of Governor Newsom” when they realized how serious the recall efforts are.
This type of funding from Soros is nothing new.
For the past decade, Soros funded campaigns of leftist District Attorney challengers across the United States. Many were elected. Now Americans are paying dearly–many with their lives.
In the 2018 elections of California, Soros spent $3,625,000 on DA races in Sacramento, San Diego, Alameda, Marin and Contra Costa counties.
By 2020, Soros funded more than $2.5 million of George Gascón’s race for Los Angeles District Attorney.
“The infusion of dark money in these races, usually in the final months before a primary or general election, makes a huge impact,” Michele Hanisee, President of the Association of Los Angeles Deputy District Attorneys, wrote. “District attorney elections are typically minimally funded, local races. The last-minute spending by these PACs leaves opposing candidates with scant time to raise a corresponding amount of cash to respond.”
The District Attorney of Los Angeles since 2012, Jackie Lacey lost in the last election to Gascón, who left the San Francisco District Attorney’s office and moved to Los Angeles to beat Lacey.
By March 2021, he faced a recall. To get the recall on the ballot, there must be 579,062 signatures from registered voters in the county by October 27, 2021.
The notice of intent is due to Gascón abandoning crime victims and their families, disregarding the rule of law, weakening sentencing requirements for violent crimes, and reducing sentences on hate, gun, and gang crimes.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, former Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley, former Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, and former Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine announced their support of the recall. As of August 20, 2021, 18 cities in Los Angeles County had passed votes of no confidence in Gascón.
Gascón told KTLA 5 in June that “the reality is crime has been going up, in fact, in L.A. County we had a 25% increase in violent crime over the last seven years because we continue to do the same things over and over again, expecting different results.”
“What I am doing is, I am revamping the way that we address violence by using science, using data, taking a public health lens approach with the way that we deal with crime,” he offered as an excuse.
Gascon vigorously plays by socialist Soros’ playbook of portraying police as agents of a racist law enforcement system that imprisons more blacks and minorities, and targets them for police harassment and abuse.
Another Soros funded achievement, Black Lives Matter (BLM), has seen success through their division and destruction, thanks to dark money support and mainstream media propaganda.
BLM supported Gascón, “over the first Black district attorney in the nation’s most populous county, for failing to prosecute police officers who kill civilians,” NBC News reported.
“We’ve tried everything with her (Lacey),” said Melina Abdullah, BLM co-founder of Black Lives Matter-L.A. “We had a deep desire to have things be different.”
Daniel Greenfield, an investigative journalist is spot on with his observations.
“The media repeatedly described Abdullah as an activist against police violence while ignoring her affinity for a racist black supremacist hate group whose leader has described Jews as satanic and subhuman,” Greenfield said. “The level of duplicity and malpractice by the media which covered this up is its own hate crime.”
The California Globe called Gascón “the architect of Proposition 47 which largely decriminalized theft and drug crimes by reducing those crimes and a number of other ‘non-violent’ felonies to misdemeanors.”
He also developed “Prop. 57, which allows early release for ‘non-violent offenders,’ including rape by intoxication of an unconscious person, human trafficking involving a sex act with minors, arson causing great bodily harm, drive-by shooting, assault with a deadly weapon, and hostage taking. These are so-called criminal justice reforms according to Gascón.”
Gascón was endorsed by Gov. Gavin Newsom. Both politicians are currently facing serious recalls.
Newsom originally appointed Gascón San Francisco District Attorney, even with no prosecutorial experience. Kamala Harris, heavily funded by Soros, also endorsed Gascón.
Of the “criminal justice reforms” supported by the Soros owned DAs, ending cash bail in California is a big priority. Their strategy–as evidenced by the destructive BLM and Antifa protests of 2020– is to release violent offenders to the streets, and destroy the $2-billion national industry. There are 3,200 bail agents in California alone.
Destroy jobs. Promote violence. Introduce more criminals into society. This reminds many Americans of the Biden-Harris strategy, doesn’t it?
Gascón has long advocated for the end of monetary bail.
Courthouse News reported that “in 2018, then-San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón asked the California Supreme Court to review a landmark lower-court ruling prohibiting authorities from holding criminal defendants in jail solely because they can’t afford to pay bail to get out.”
A drug used for cancer treatment has been voluntarily recalled according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Teva Pharmaceuticals is recalling one lot of its injectable cancer drug topotecan after a pharmacy found one of the vials contained a glass particle.
The FDA made the announcement last week that after a further examination, a silicone particle was also found in a vial as well as a cotton fiber.
“The administration of an injectable product that contains particulate matter may result in local irritation or swelling in response to the foreign material,” the FDA Announcement indicated. “If the particulate matter reaches the blood vessels it can travel to various organs and block blood vessels in the heart, lungs or brain which can cause stroke and even lead to death.”
Topotecan is indicated to treat metastatic ovarian cancer, small-cell lung cancer and cervical cancer.
The recalled lot was distributed nationwide to six of Teva’s wholesale customers, and the drugmaker has asked its customers to return all affected vials.
“While the health hazard risk could be severe if particulate matter is infused, Teva’s internal health assessment determined that the likelihood of patient exposure to impacted product is remote or unlikely,” the FDA release said. “To date Teva has received no further complaints or reports of illness or injury.”
