Radioactive tissue-box holders yanked from shelves

We’ll stick with a plain old box of Kleenex.

The New York State Dept. of Health yanked several tissue boxes off Bed Bath & Beyond shelves after they were found to be radioactive.

The Dual Ridge Boutique metal boxes were found to contain small amounts of cobalt-60, which can cause cancer with prolonged exposure.

The “brushed metal” tissue boxes were found contain the toxic ingredient after a shipment bound for California stores set off alarms at a truck stop.
