Standard Homeopathic Company has issued a nationwide recall of its Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets and Hyland’s Baby Nighttime Teething Tablets. According to an FDA press release, confirmed amounts of belladonna alkaloids inconsistent with the product’s labeling were found in the products.
FDA officials previously issued an announcement urging consumers to avoid these products due to excessive amounts of belladonna found during a laboratory analysis. The company halted production and distribution of the products in October 2016.
The company’s products have been sold in retail stores to the consumer level and were used to provide temporary relief of teething symptoms in children. The recall covers all lots of the product that retailers may have in stock.
The FDA stated that “there is no known safe dose or toxic dose of belladonna in children because of the many factors that affect it.”
No other Standard Homeopathic Company/Hyland’s products are affected by this recall. The FDA urges health care providers and consumers to report any adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of these products.
