- Shiny metallic-blue tissue box containers recently sold in California may owe their color to radioactive cobalt 60 and purchasers were urged by state safety experts this weekend to return them.
The state said the boxes were sold at some, but not all, Bed Bath and Beyond stores.The boxes' low level of radioactivity "poses no immediate health threat," and they can safely be carried back to stores for a refund. The metal boxes are marked with model number DR9M.According to the state, the chain sold the boxes at stores in Chula Vista, Oceanside and San Diego.In Los Angeles County, the boxes were sold at Canoga Park, Los Angeles, Pasadena, Studio City, Valencia and West Covina, and in Orange County they were sold in Huntington Beach and Irvine. In the Inland Empire, the boxes were sold at Fontana and Ontario Mills.They were also sold in Oxnard and four stores in the San Francisco Bay Area, the store company told the state.
