I learned earlier today that Hyland’s Homeopathic Teething Tablets have been recalled by the FDA. We’ve used these with Pineapple since she began teething so this is rather upsetting for us.
According to the reports, the fact that this is a homeopathic product and does not operate under the same FDA regulations as traditional medication, the levels of an ingredient (namely Belladonna) vary from package to package. Overdoses of Belladonna have occurred in some children and there are a number of worrisome side effects – difficulty breathing, sleepiness and seizures, among others.
I wanted to share this and make sure my friends were aware – this is scary. You can read more here: http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm230761.htm
Happy, healthy and SAFE parenting!
