Hyland's Teething Tablets Recalled
October 25, 2010
Standard Homeopathic Company is voluntarily recalling its Hyland's Teething Tablets, an over-the-counter homeopathic product used to ease teething pain in babies.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that the recalled tablets may pose a risk to children due to inconsistent amounts of belladonna, a substance that can cause serious harm at larger doses. The FDA has received reports of seizures, difficulty breathing, and muscle weakness in children using the tablets. There have also been reports of overdose; the containers do not have child safety caps.
