Parents and caregivers are urged to discard Hyland’s Teething Tablets, an over-the-counter homeopathic remedy, due to a potentially toxic substance. The substance in question is belladonna, a substance that can cause harm in larger doses, according to a statement by the FDA. The agency said it has received reports that some children taking these products have experienced symptoms consistent with belladonna toxicity but a conclusive link has not been determined. The agency has also received reports of children consuming more tablets than recommended, because the containers lack child resistant caps. The tablets and corresponding product codes are listed below:

Hyland’s Teething Tablets, 125 tablets, UPC # 3 54973 75041

Hyland’s Teething Tablets, 250 tablets, UPC # 3 54973 75042

In addition to the product recall, Standard Homeopathic Company is refining its production, packaging and testing protocols and will continue to consult with the FDA.
