Everyone likes a good saving, but sometimes it doesn't pay to be thrifty at all.


Shopping at the dollar store can be highly appealing because of all the savings involved. But a recent study has indicated that some of the items at these stores can cause serious infections, or even death.

As reported by All Cute All The Time, HealthyStuff conducted a study of products at Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, and 99 Cents Only.

Many of the items seemed to contain toxic chemicals that have been known to cause major infections, and sometimes even causing deaths.

The items containing these chemicals were plastic items, with 81% of items researched containing at least one toxic chemical, while 49% had at least two or more. 32% of vinyl items that were tested showed positive results for deadly acid.


Here are just 10 of the items that were found to be dangerous for humans because of toxic chemicals.

1. Plastic Cooking and Baking Utensils

2. Rubber Duckies (Set of 3)

3. Batteries

4. Baby Bottle

5. Bath Accessories

6. Jewelry (Clip-on jewelry included)

7. Dolls

8. Electronic Accessories

9. Garden Knee Pad

10. Tub and Floor Mats

When purchasing anything from a dollar store, always remember that if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is!

Always be sure to read the label of these items carefully before purchasing them in order to avoid exposing yourself and your loved ones to toxins that could cause serious illnesses.
