Standard Homeopathic Company is recalling all lots of Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets and Hyland’s Baby Nighttime Teething Tablets sold in retail stores. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has concluded that the medicines have been found to contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna that may differ from the amount on the products’ labels. The FDA believes that belladonna represents a serious health hazard to children and that the effects of belladonna are unpredictable.
Providers at Allegro Pediatrics do not support the use of these or other homeopathic treatments for teething.
See the press release on the FDA’s website for more details about the recall.
