The Food and Drug Administration fired off a warning letter to Greenbrier Online Cigarettes Store USA International — which does business as the well-known American discount chain, Dollar Tree — for selling “potentially unsafe drugs” from foreign manufacturers with multiple violations.

These manufacturers were all placed on “import alert," which is used “to prevent potentially violative products Cheap Newport 100s cigarettes from being imported into the U.S. market,” according to the FDA.
