The Nuclear Regulatory Commission says metal tissue holders contaminated with low levels of radioactive material, called man-made Cobalt-60, may have been distributed to Bed, Bath & Beyond stores in more than 20 states.

The NRC says there’s no threat to human health, but suggests avoiding unnecessary radiation exposure.

A spokesman says someone keeping one of the boxes in the bathroom and spending about a half-hour a day near it for a year would get the equivalent of a couple of chest X-rays.

The Dual Ridge Metal boutique tissue holder’s been pulled from shelves, and the company’s asking customers to return any purchased tissue holders.
