Recall Alert: Hyland’s Teething Tablets

teethingDo you give your baby Hyland’s Teething Tablets? You should stop and immediately discard any remaining tablets. Each tablet is manufactured to contain a small amount of belladonna, a substance that in large doses can cause serious harm. However, an FDA analysis of the product shows that the tablets contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna. Additionally, the FDA has received reports of children consuming more than the recommended dose of the product, likely because the container does not have child-resistant packaging.

Consuming too much belladonna can lead to seizures, difficulty breathing, excessive sleepiness, muscle weakness, skin flushing, constipation, difficulty urinating, or agitation.

If your baby consumed Hyland’s teething tablets and is experiencing any of these symptoms, contact a doctor immediately. Additionally, you can report adverse reactions to the FDA’s MedWatch Program.

    I was never a fan of these teething tablets. Humphrey’s are childproof and seem to work better with my children. Hope no children are harmed by these.

    I used these while my son was teething and we loved them. They worked great. However, now I am worried because I just recommended them to a friend of mine. Does anyone know what the range of amounts was and what the safe level is?

    this scares me! i used these for all my kids, including my 11 month old who’s been teething for the past 7 months. i’m going to throw away what’s left in the bottle, but i was under the impression these were safer than tylenol and was using them freely all this time! it seems like you really can’t safely trust any health product anymore. there’s bound to be a catch sooner or later.

    Can I just say what a alleviation to find someone who really knows what they are talking about on the web. You certainly can take a major issue to light and enable it to be critical. More people need to learn it and understand this particular side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular as you definitely have the gift.
