A Kansas City-area Bed, Bath & Beyond store is recalling metal tissue holders due to low levels of radioactive material.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said the products were distributed to a store in Overland Park. It is possible one of the items was sold before the recall.

Health officials said the products do not pose an immediate health risk.

“The radioactivity is contained within the metal of the box and cannot be transferred to tissues or people," said Dr. Robert Moser, KDHE secretary. "There is little to no risk to human health, but it's better to avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation.”

The contaminated item is in the Dual Ridge Boutique product line, model number DR9M. The product SKU is 18485524. The UPC is 8476820004980. These tissue box holders were manufactured at a facility in India and shipped to a Bed, Bath & Beyond distribution site in New Jersey. The items were shipped to the company’s stores in 20 states.

Customers who have purchased this product should return it to their nearest Bed, Bath & Beyond store for a full refund. More information is available from the retailer at 1-800-462-3966.
