Hyland's teething tablets recalled over levels of toxic herb

Homeopathy company launches nationwide recall of tablets blamed for infant seizures Hyland's Officially Recalls All Homeopathic Baby Teething Tablets Over High Levels Of Belladonna

The company, Standard Homeopathic, said it was recalling the tablets at the request of the Food and Drug Administration, which had concluded that they contained inconsistent amounts of belladonna, an herb known colloquially as "deadly nightshade".

The FDA said that the "effects of belladonna are unpredictable" posing a "serious health hazard" to kids.

Standard Homeopathic Co. of Los Angeles, stopped making and shipping the tablets last October.

Anyone who still has the product should toss them.

Belladonna is a plant that can be poisonous, which is normally used as a sedative and cold remedy. However, the agency found varying levels of belladonna when it tested Hyland's teething tablets, including some that far exceeded what was listed on the labels. "We are committed to maintaining and earning the trust consumers have placed in Standard Homeopathic Company". We have worked for 114 years to build relationships with our consumers.

The tablets are meant to help babies while they are teething. Some of the functions regulated by the nervous system include salivation, sweating, pupil size, digestive functions, and others.

According to CNN, the FDA has received more than 400 reports of negative events linked to baby products containing belladonna, including 10 deaths that referenced homeopathic teething products. In September 2016, the FDA warned against the use of these products after receiving adverse event reports.

The teething tablets were used to provide temporary relief of teething symptoms in children. Pain relievers that you rub on the gums are not recommended since they wash out of the baby's mouth within minutes.

Babies are a little safer today as Hyland's homeopathic teething tablets have finally been recalled by their manufacturer, Standard Homeopathic Company.
