Teething Tablets by Hyland's being recalled

While I have loved Hyland's Teething Tablets for decades, there currently seems to be a problem with them. Please do not give them to your children at this time. Belladona toxicity is nothing to mess around with!

May all babies be born into loving hands...

Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database: Special Alert

Our team at Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database monitors regulatory alerts related to natural medicines from around the world. We wanted to take this opportunity to advise you about an important recall.

• Teething Tablets by Hyland's is being recalled throughout North America due to serious safety concerns. Many parents give this product to children to reduce teething-related pain. Product labeling indicates that it should contain only a very small homeopathic dilution of the drug belladonna. However, laboratory analysis has found that some batches contained more of the drug than it should. Some children who have taken it have developed belladonna toxicity. Advise parents not to use this product.
