The other day I was complaining about ridiculous recalls. Well the latest one I saw come across my inbox isn't ridiculous. Unfortunately, though, it is a product I love, so I'm pretty bummed about it.
Hyland's Teething Tablets were recalled over the weekend. I'm so sad about this. We used them for Rylie and we have been using them recently for Bryce. We call them "Magic Beans" in our house, because they work like magic! They really do work wonders on a teething baby.
Here is an excerpt from the FDA's Questions and Answers about this recall:
FDA is issuing this warning because the use of Hyland’s Teething Tablets may pose a risk to children. FDA analysis and testing identified some Hyland’s Teething Tablets that contained varying amounts of belladonna, a potentially toxic ingredient. FDA has received reports of serious adverse events in children taking this product that are consistent with belladonna toxicity. An ongoing FDA inspection at the manufacturer indicates substandard control of the manufacturing operation.
FDA has also received reports of children who consumed more tablets than recommended, because the containers do not have child resistant caps.
Sure, I have to wonder if the problem occurs when children take more than directed, but I would rather be safe than sorry. Our bottle of Hyland's is now in the garbage. Like I said, I'm really bummed about this. Now what is going to help my little buddy on those miserable nights when he can't get any relief?
