Hyland's Baby Teething Tablets recalled

On January 25th, 2017, the FDA contacted Standard Homeopathic Company informing the company of these findings and ordering them to recall the products.

The last straw was a FDA's formal recall request from the FDA, a strong letter written to the company.

If you have these products in your home you need to throw them away.

In light of these findings, the FDA contacted Standard Homeopathic Company in Los Angeles, the manufacturer of Hyland's homeopathic teething products, regarding a recall of its homeopathic teething tablet products labeled as containing belladonna, in order to protect consumers from inconsistent levels of belladonna.

Belladonna, also called nightshade, is a poisonous herb that nonetheless has been used at low dosages as a homeopathic medicine for centuries.

Several kinds of teething tablets for babies have been recalled, federal officials said. The recall includes all products retailers may have had in stock. At this time, the company has not agreed to conduct a recall. The FDA urged parents to seek medical help if their babies experienced seizures, difficulty breathing, weakness, flushed skin, constipation, agitation, or difficulty urinating after using homeopathic teething products. In October, the agency confirmed that at least around 400 such "adverse events" were linked to the product's use, along with 10 deaths.

Even after issuing the recall, Hyland's maintained that its product met its own "safety limit tests" and that all tested tablets fell "well within an established safety threshold", according to a press release. The product is not safe and is now recalled.
