NEW YORK — Federal regulators say metal tissue holders contaminated with low levels of radioactive material may have been distributed to Bed, Bath & Beyond stores in more than 20 states, including New York.

Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman David McIntyre said the home products company has pulled the tissue holder from its stores. He says there's no threat to human health but it's better to avoid unnecessary exposure to radiation.

Bed, Bath & Beyond Inc. said in a statement Thursday its Dual Ridge Metal boutique tissue holder has been carried in about 200 of its stores since July.

Authorities say the tissue holders contain manmade cobalt-60 radioactive material.
