The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning about the potential risk of teething tablets and gels to infants and children.
Specifically, the agency urged consumers to temporarily stop using homeopathic tablets and gels after numerous deaths related to the tablets occurred. The products included in the recall were tested by the FDA and found to contain belladonna.
Recently, Hyland’s, a manufacturer of homeopathic teething products, announced it will stop distributing teething tablets and gels in the U.S. following the precautionary warning by the FDA. In a statement released by the company, the manufacturer insisted the products were safe for use because they contained only a tiny amount of belladona, a toxin derived from a poisonous plant. The FDA is urging its consumers to consult with a physician before using any medicine. For a full description of the products included in the recall, you can visit the FDA website.
