Hyland’s Teething Tablet Lawsuit
Stop using Hyland’s Teething Tablets IMMEDIATELY!
- Teething product linked to at least 10 infant deaths and adverse effects in 400 children.
- Product advertised as homeopathic contains a known deadly toxin called belladonna.
- If you know of anyone affected by Hyland tablets, we can help them discuss their options.
Teething babies can be irritable and difficult to keep happy. This is challenging for parents who want to alleviate their suffering. To that end, parents across the country have relied on teething tablets to sooth the symptoms of teething in their children. There are many teething remedies out there to help babies deal with the pain of cutting teeth. These products can range from chew toys to homeopathic teething medications, such as teething tablets.
Unfortunately, homeopathic teething tablets have been implicated in the deaths of at least 10 babies in the past six years. Hundreds of children have also suffered serious adverse side effects that may be attributed to belladonna, an ingredient in Hyland’s homeopathic teething tablets and other similar products. Belladonna, more popularly known as nightshade, is a plant with known toxic effects. Such an ingredient has no place in a product for vulnerable children. If your child has fallen ill or died while taking a teething remedy, you are not alone. Speak with an attorney at Williams Hart to learn what you can do to fight back.
Symptoms of Teething Tablet Toxicity
If you gave your child teething tablets, you may be wondering what to look out for in light of these frightening revelations. The FDA’s list of teething tablet toxicity symptoms includes:
- Difficulty Breathing
- Difficulty Urinating
- Muscle Weakness
- Flushed Skin
Additionally, belladonna-containing teething tablets have been linked to at least 10 infant fatalities. This news, as shocking as it is to parents of infants, is especially disturbing when it is revealed that the FDA issued a warning to Hyland’s in 2010 about the inconsistent amounts of belladonna in their teething tablets. According to the FDA in 2010, “an ongoing inspection at the manufacturer also indicates substandard control of the manufacturing operation. After consultation with the FDA today, the manufacturer of the product, Standard Homeopathic Company agreed to voluntarily recall Hyland’s Teething Tablets from the market.”
If you have noticed these symptoms in your child after using teething tablets, you may be able to hold the product’s manufacturer accountable for not only lying about the tablets’ safety, but also for harming your child.
