Radioactive tissue holder bought in Overland Park should be returned

A metal tissue holder sold in Overland Park contains low levels of radioactivity and whoever bought it should return it for a full refund, Kansas health officials said today.

Two of the tissue holders made in India went to the Bed, Bath & Beyond store in Overland Park and someone apparently bought one, officials said.

The recalled items pose little health risk but “it’s better to avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation,” said Robert Moser, secretary of the Kansas department of health.

The item is in the Dual Ridge Boutique product line, model number DR9M. They were shipped to the company’s stores in 20 states and only the store at 12035 Metcalf Avenue in Overland Park received them in Kansas, officials said.
