Bed, Bath & Beyond selling radioactive tissue box holders

Yes, you read that correctly. But don't worry:
The Illinois Emergency Management Agency says there is "no immediate threat" posed by decorative tissue box holders sold by Bed, Bath and Beyond that are contaminated with low-levels of radioactive material.

IEMA said Friday it is coordinating with federal officials and Bed, Bath and Beyond to identify and secure the tissue box holders contaminated with cobalt-60. While they present no immediate health risk, according to a release from IEMA, the agency is working with federal officials to prevent unnecessary radiation exposure by anyone who comes in contact with them.

Yeah, I think I'll keep shopping at Target.
