Family Dollar is recalling hundreds of items that were improperly stored and shipped to an undisclosed number of stores, according to a notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

Over 400 products were "stored outside of labeled temperature requirements" and accidentally shipped to certain stores between early May and June 10, according to the recall notice. 

The recalled products cover a range of items from moisturizer, sunscreen and soap to deodorant, antiperspirant and toothpaste. It also includes a variety of medicines such as certain DayQuil and Tylenol products.

The notice doesn't disclose how many stores are affected. However, the company said the recall doesn't apply to Delaware, Alaska or Hawaii.

Family Dollar, owned by Dollar Tree, already notified stores to "check their stock immediately and to quarantine and discontinue the sale of any affected product," the notice said. 

To date, there haven't been any reports of illnesses related to the recalled products, Family Dollar said.

Representatives for Family Dollar did not immediately respond to FOX Business' request for comment.
