Hyland’s Baby Tablets Recalled Due To Mislabeled Products
Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets and Hyland’s Baby Nighttime Teething Tablets are being recalled because they could cause a serious health hazard to children, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
According to WPRI 12, "the tablets contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna alkaloids that may be different than what appears on the products’ labels, according to the FDA." The agency said in a statement, "there is no known safe dose or toxic dose of belladonna in children because of the many factors that affect it."
In October 2016, Standard Homeopathic Company halted the production and distribution of the tablets, but the products have remained on store shelves. The recall guarantees that the potentially harmful tablets will be removed.
Both tablet products were used to provide temporary relief of teething symptoms in children.
Parents are urged to discard these products if they have them. The FDA also recommends that you contact a physician if you believe your child has experienced any problems because from this product.
