A nationwide recall is underway for some baby teething tablets. Standard Homeopathic Company is recalling Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets and Hyland’s Baby Nighttime Teething Tablets due to mislabeling
The FDA says the medicines contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna alkaloids that may differ from the amount listed on the products’ labels. The agency says that that belladonna represents a serious health hazard to children and that the effects of belladonna are unpredictable. The agency has stated to the company, “there is no known safe dose or toxic dose of belladonna in children because of the many factors that affect it.”
The recall includes all products that retailers may have had in stock. The Company stopped making and shipping the medicines nationwide in October 2016. This recall ensures the removal of any possible remaining products that may be on store shelves. No other Standard Homeopathic Company/Hyland’s products are affected by this recall.
Consumers who have products which are being recalled should discard the product.
