Hyland's recalls teething products months after FDA warns of toxic substances

Hyland's Homeopathic issued a recall of its baby teething tablets April 14, about three months after the Food and Drug Administration discovered inconsistent amounts of the toxic substance belladonna in the products.

Here are four things to know.

1. The FDA launched an investigation of Hyland's Homeopathic's teething products after it received reports of 400 adverse events and 10 child deaths relating to the products.

2. After finding inconsistent amounts of belladona in the products, the FDA reached out to Standard Homeopathic Company — which manufactures Hyland's teething products — in late January asking them to recall the homeopathic teething tablet products.

3. While Hyland's asserts its products are safe, the company responded to the FDA's request and has now recalled all lots of Hyland's teething products. The company stopped manufacturing and selling the products in October.

4. Standard Homeopathic notified its distributors and retailers about the recall and is working with them to return the products. Any customers who own the product should discard it immediately, according to the company.
